FCC Announces Membership And First Meeting Of The Re-Chartered Broadband Deployment Advisory Committee
Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai has appointed members to serve on the re-chartered Broadband Deployment Advisory Committee (BDAC). The re-chartered BDAC will hold its first meeting on June 13, 2019. In its second term, the BDAC will continue its work to craft recommendations for the FCC on ways to accelerate the deployment of high-speed Internet access, or “broadband,” by reducing and/or removing regulatory barriers to infrastructure investment and strengthening existing broadband networks in communities across the country. The BDAC will continue to provide an opportunity for interested stakeholders to exchange ideas and develop recommendations to the FCC on broadband deployment, which will in turn enhance the FCC’s ability to carry out its statutory responsibility to encourage the deployment of broadband to all Americans.
Chairman Pai has designated Elizabeth Bowles, President and Chair of Aristotle, Inc., to continue to serve as Chair of the BDAC, and David Young, Fiber Infrastructure and Right of Way Manager, City of Lincoln (NE) to continue to serve as Vice Chair. A full list of BDAC members is attached to this Public Notice.
