FCC Taps Fiber Broadband Association President for Broadband Deployment Advisory Council

FCC Taps Fiber Broadband Association President for Broadband Deployment Advisory Council


This week, FCC Chair Ajit Pai named Heather Burnett Gold, President & CEO of the Fiber Broadband Association to the Broadband Deployment Advisory Council, which is charged with advising on how to enable and create incentives for broadband infrastructure deployment. The group, which also includes Fiber Broadband Association members Comcast, Google Fiber, Rocket Fiber, TDS Telecom and Cincinnati Midwest, is well aligned with the Association's mission of accelerating the connected future.  

"The Fiber Broadband Association has long worked to break down and reduce regulatory barriers to fiber deployment by educating policymakers at all levels of government, as well as communities directly, on how to enable and create incentives for infrastructure deployment," said Gold, "We and our members look forward to working with the Chairman and this group on developing model proposals to propel fiber broadband deployment across the U.S."
