WASHINGTON, D.C. (October 26, 2021) – President Biden announced the nomination of Alan Davidson to lead the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) at the Department of Commerce.
In response, Chip Pickering, CEO of INCOMPAS, released the following statement:
“Congratulations to Alan Davidson on being nominated to the biggest job in broadband history. Congress is on the brink of making a record $65 billion broadband investment that has the potential to transform America’s internet future. Done right, competition policy will be the driving force behind these investments, as competition has proven time and again to be the leading driver for faster speeds and lower prices that save consumers money and help small businesses grow.
“Alan brings tremendous experience to this role at NTIA, having seen first hand the transformative power access to an open internet and competitive new networks has on all communities, urban and rural. We look forward to working with Alan to ensure our networks of the future are built faster and better than our global competition.”
