FCC’s Brendan Carr to Keynote WISPAmerica on March 20th
WISPA is pleased to announce that Federal Communications Commissioner Brendan Carr will deliver the keynote address at WISPAmerica, on March 20th. Carr was recently reconfirmed by the U.S. Senate to a full, five-year term at the FCC, having previously served a partial term. Carr is a champion of rural broadband who has met frequently with WISPA representatives and has visited WISPA member facilities. He is also a leader of efforts to improve the United States’ internet infrastructure and reduce regulatory burdens. He is knowledgeable on the full range of telecom policy issues, especially wireless, public safety, competition and international issues.
Brendan Carr previously served as the FCC's general counsel and a lead advisor to now-Chairman Ajit Pai. Carr also worked as a telecommunications attorney at the law firm of Wiley Rein.
We look forward to hearing his views on issues of interest to WISPA members including spectrum, infrastructure, and subsidies.
