The Internet Innovation Alliance (IIA) has just released the statement below regarding last night’s Senate vote to confirm Starks and Carr to new FCC terms:

IIA warmly congratulates Geoffrey Starks on his confirmation as a Commissioner of the FCC and Brendan Carr on his confirmation to an additional term. Both bring a wealth of experience to the tasks ahead. At a time when the nation is beginning the transition to much faster and more versatile 5G networks, we look forward to working with them on critical policies to accelerate broadband deployments and meet the country’s broadband needs.”
