CCA’s Rebecca Murphy Thompson Named to Broadband Deployment Advisory Committee Working Group
Washington, DC – May 16, 2017 – Today, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC or Commission) announced two Broadband Deployment Advisory Committee (BDAC) working groups, and Chairman Ajit Pai appointed Rebecca Murphy Thompson to serve as a member of the Removing State and Local Regulatory Barriers Working Group. CCA thanks the Commission for including CCA on the working group and congratulates Thompson on her appointment.
“I am very pleased Rebecca has been appointed to the Removing State and Local Regulatory Barriers Working Group of the BDAC, and I thank Chairman Pai for including CCA in this important discussion,” said CCA President & CEO Steven K. Berry. “The FCC has a unique opportunity to make significant improvements to broadband deployment, and CCA members are equally committed to making progress so all Americans have prompt access to high-speed mobile broadband services. It is absolutely essential that any current or potential barriers from state and local entities be addressed to ensure there are no delays providing consumers the mobile services they want and demand.”
“I’m honored to represent CCA on this BDAC working group, and I look forward to working with fellow group members to find effective and efficient solutions to state and local regulatory barriers,” Thompson said. “All consumers, especially individuals in rural and hard-to-reach areas who benefit the most from the latest mobile technology, should have access to high-speed mobile broadband services. I’m pleased CCA, and in turn rural carriers and consumers, will have a voice at the table on this important consumer issue.”
