Statement from Connected Nation Chairman & CEO Thomas W. Ferree applauding the designation of Jessica Rosenworcel as Acting Chair of the FCC

WASHINGTON, Jan. 21, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Thomas W. Ferree, Chairman & CEO of Connected Nation, released the following statement on the designation of Jessica Rosenworcel as Acting Chair of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC):

Jessica Rosenworcel has been a tireless champion for the expansion of broadband access to all Americans.

“We applaud President Biden’s designation of Jessica Rosenworcel as Acting Chair of the FCC.  As a commissioner at the agency, she has been a tireless champion for the expansion of broadband access to all Americans and has been a passionate voice on behalf of the most disconnected and overlooked among us.  Her advocacy for the improvement and preservation of the E-rate Program has meant, as our Connect K-12 data indicate, dramatically better connectivity for our nation’s schools over the past five years.  

“Beyond that, she has been a staunch advocate for policies that will help close the ‘Homework Gap’ for students that have no access at home, as well as for the long-awaited improvement of the FCC’s broadband maps, which guide where federal dollars are invested to improve access.  While there is still much work left to be done, we look forward to her leadership of the agency and to working alongside her to ensure that every American has access to fast, affordable broadband service.”
