Chairman Pai’s Response to Rep. Gonzalez-Colon Regarding USTelecom Petition
On January 17, 2019, Rep. Jenniffer González-Colón (D-Puerto Rico) sent a letter to Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai expressing concerns with a USTelecom petition requesting forbearance from the certain requirements of the section 251 (c) of the Communications Act. She is concerned that the level of competition in the Puerto Rico telecommunications sector is not similar to that of the rest of the United States and she wants to ensure that any relief did not impede network restoration and reconstruction efforts in Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria. On Feb 28, Chairman Pai replied saying, "Please be assured that we will take into consideration the issues and concerns presented by all stakeholders—including those of your constituents—as the Commission deliberates on the appropriate course of action."
