Restoring Internet Freedom, WC Docket No. 17-108
On Friday, December 1, and Monday, December 4, 2017, Michael Romano, Senior Vice President-Industry Affairs & Business Development, on behalf of NTCA–The Rural Broadband Association (“NTCA”), met with each of the advisors to the FCC Commissioners.
During these meetings, consistent with prior advocacy, NTCA expressed the importance of an ongoing but carefully structured role for the Federal Communications Commission (the “Commission”) in ensuring that underlying operators interconnect and exchange data in a manner that promotes broadband availability and universal service objectives that are the distinct province and responsibility of this Commission under federal law.
