INCOMPAS Statement on Senate Confirmation of Alan Davidson to Lead NTIA
WASHINGTON, D.C. (January 11, 2022) – The United States Senate voted today to confirm 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:
“We wish to congratulate Alan Davidson and his family on his Senate confirmation to lead the NTIA. This is one of the most important public service jobs in broadband history. A bipartisan Congress united to invest a record $65 billion into broadband 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 have 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.”
