Washington, DC – The Wireless Internet Service Providers Association (WISPA) welcomes the news that the U.S. Senate voted last night to reconfirm Federal Communications Commission member Brendan Carr for a second term and to confirm Geoffrey Starks as a new commissioner.

“We appreciate that Commissioner Carr has taken an interest in fixed wireless broadband, including visits to several WISPs and WISP-enabled rural businesses,” said WISPA President Claude Aiken. “He understands the crucial role our members are playing in closing the digital divide, and the need for better infrastructure, spectrum, and subsidy policies to help us do so.”

"WISPA also welcomes the elevation of Geoffrey Starks, a longtime public servant at the FCC and the Department of Justice, and a friend of mine,” said Aiken. “Geoffrey brings a strong intellect, an open mind, and a keen sympathy for the interests of consumers.” 

“We look forward to working with Commissioners Carr and Starks and the entire FCC to adopt smart, balanced policies that will enable fixed wireless broadband operators to continue growing and serving more rural consumers, while promoting competition and innovation for consumers everywhere," Aiken said.
