WISPA statement on the resignation of NTIA's David Redl
Washington, DC, May 9, 2019 – Today NTIA Administrator, David Redl, announced his resignation. The following is a statement, which can be attributed to Claude Aiken, president and CEO of the Wireless Internet Service Providers Association (WISPA):
“David’s work at the Department of Commerce with the NTIA, and elsewhere in government, has had a profound and positive effect on the U.S. communications landscape. He was passionate about getting affordable broadband deployed to all Americans and advancing U.S. leadership in new technologies. WISPA especially appreciates all that David did with the myriad government stakeholders to help free-up more shared spectrum for commercial use. These important efforts, we hope, will carry forward at the NTIA.
“I am proud to have worked with David on these and other issues over the years. He brought an intelligent, expert, fair-minded approach to issues before him, and he will be missed. We wish him the best as he moves on to other endeavors.”
