Written Statement of NTIA Director Alan Davidson Before the House Commerce Committee's Subcommittee on Communications and Technology

Since my last appearance before the House Commerce Committee in May 2023, the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) has made considerable progress toward the bipartisan initiatives that Congress tasked to NTIA. These include:

  1. Connecting everyone in America to affordable, reliable high-speed Internet service, no matter where they live;
  2. Maintaining American leadership in wireless innovation by developing a national spectrum strategy, a spectrum pipeline, and data-driven processes for long-term spectrum planning; and
  3. Developing policies that will make for a better Internet – one that offers privacy, security, openness, and trust.

Affordability is a critical component in the Administration’s effort to connect all Americans to high-speed Internet service, and Congress can help by acting now to address the President’s supplemental funding request for the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) to ensure that millions of Americans can continue to afford to be connected.
