Chairman Genachowski leadership marked by his commitment to broadband expansion

FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski announced his resignation from the Commisssion today, following on the heels of Commr. Robert McDowell's announcement earlier this week. Craig Silliman, Verizon senior vice president for public policy and government affairs, had some remarks:

“Chairman Genachowski’s leadership at the FCC has been marked by his commitment to encourage expansion and adoption of broadband – both wireless and wireline – as a transformative technology that is critical to our nation’s global competitiveness, our economy and our standing as global leader in wireless innovation.  We commend him for modernizing outdated policies, including reforms to the antiquated intercarrier compensation system and the Universal Service Fund.  He was also successful in keeping the Agency focused on the needs of consumers in today’s marketplace, including addressing the surging demand for wireless spectrum.  We wish him well as he embarks on the next stage of his career.”
