The following statement is attributed to Gary Shapiro, president and CEO, Consumer Technology Association (CTA)™, regarding the pending departures of Chairman Tom Wheeler and Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC):

“We thank Chairman Wheeler and Commissioner Rosenworcel for their service, particularly their leadership in implementing the world’s first TV broadcast spectrum voluntary incentive auction. As our world becomes more connected and devices become powerful hubs for our connected lives – from wearable technology to smart home devices to self-driving cars – we need additional licensed and unlicensed spectrum now more than ever. Chairman Wheeler and Commissioner Rosenworcel have been key drivers of freeing up the spectrum we need, and consumers will benefit from their legacy.”

In one of Chairman Wheeler’s final public discussions, he’ll address CES 2017 attendees on Jan. 5 in Las Vegas to discuss challenges and opportunities facing the FCC.
