FCC Chairman Wheeler Gives Communities Big Nod

Chairman Wheeler

The Washington Post is reporting that today Chairman Wheeler will circulate a decision to his colleagues at the Federal Communications Commission that will address state laws that block competitive, community-led broadband deployments. 

CLIC applauds Chairman Wheeler for his leadership and recognition that local communities play an integral role in ensuring broadband competition for their residents. This is a big step forward and just the beginning — we look forward to working with the Chairman, the rest of the Commission and other stakeholders to remove barriers to better broadband around the country.
