WISP INDUSTRY’S ELIZABETH BOWLES TO HEAD FCC BROADBAND COMMITTEE
Washington, DC -- A former leader of the Wireless Internet Service Providers Association has been named to head a Federal Communications Commission (FCC) advisory committee on broadband deployment.
L. Elizabeth Bowles, president and chairman of Arkansas-based Aristotle, Inc. and a former board member of WISPA, was appointed by FCC Chairman Ajit Pai to serve as chair of the agency’s Broadband Deployment Advisory Committee (BDAC).
In the announcement, Chairman Pai said Bowles “has made great contributions to the BDAC and its working groups already, and she brings to the table a combination of talents and expertise that will serve her well in this new role. I thank her in advance for her leadership of the BDAC as it develops recommendations to accelerate broadband deployment and close the digital divide.”
“WISPA congratulates Elizabeth on her appointment to this important role,” said Jimmy Carr, CEO of Virginia-based All Points Broadband and Chairman of WISPA’s Legislative Committee. “Elizabeth is a consensus builder who will bring valuable perspective to advance the important objective of delivering connectivity to all Americans.”
Chairman Pai formed the BDAC in January 2017 to provide advice and recommendations to the Commission on how to accelerate the deployment of high-speed Internet access. The BDAC will offer recommendations to the Commission for a two-year period.
