WCAI Congratulates Jonathan Adelstein on Confirmation as RUS Administrator

The full Senate has approved the nomination of former FCC Commissioner Jonathan Adelstein to be the Administrator of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Rural Utilities Service (RUS).

On behalf of the wireless broadband industry, I congratulate Mr. Adelstein on his confirmation to head the rural Internet program. A strong advocate for bringing innovative broadband services to rural America, Mr. Adelstein is the ideal choice to lead the RUS program to distribute $2.5 billion in broadband stimulus funds and promote universal wireless broadband access in the United States.
