Redl Fans Weigh In

Coverage Type: 

David Redl's Senate confirmation Nov 7 as the new head of the National Telecommunications & Information Administration continued to draw attention from telecom interests in Washington. NTIA, housed within the Commerce Department, is the chief communications advisor to the White House. It also oversees government spectrum use, much as the FCC oversees commercial users.

“I congratulate David Redl on his confirmation to serve as NTIA Administrator,” said Chairman Pai. “David is incredibly well-qualified to serve at the helm of NTIA, and I know he will further NTIA’s missions of promoting broadband deployment and ensuring that the Internet remains an engine for innovation and economic growth. I look forward to working with him on spectrum, infrastructure, and other issues.”

“I extend my appreciation to the U.S. Senate for approving the nomination of David Redl to be Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Communications and Information. Mr. Redl is a consummate professional and a likeable guy – both qualities that will be helpful in leading NTIA. I look forward to working with him on many projects, including freeing additional public spectrum for commercial purposes, securing U.S. interests in ICANN, and reforming the international spectrum harmonization process.”
