Fiber Broadband Association Commends Nomination of Jessica Rosenworcel as FCC Commissioner
Washington, D.C. — The Fiber Broadband Association welcomes the news that Jessica Rosenworcel, who served as FCC Commissioner from 2012 to 2016, has been renominated for the position by President Trump.
During Rosenworcel’s tenure at the FCC, the commission took strides to accelerate fiber network deployment across the country. Rosenworcel was a passionate advocate of innovative fiber solutions, writing in a blog post that “new deployment should be judged not through the prism of old, detailed regulations but instead through the four essential values that have always informed communications policy—public safety, universal access, competition, and consumer protection.”
“We are thrilled at the prospect of having Commissioner Rosenworcel back at the FCC,” said Heather Burnett Gold, President and CEO of the Fiber Broadband Association. “If she is confirmed, we look forward to her continued support of fiber networks and the benefits that fiber brings to American families, businesses, and communities.”
