Ernesto Falcon, Senior Legislative Counsel at the Electronic Frontier Foundation, brings critical tools during the U.S. Senate confirmation of Federal Communications Commission interim Chairwoman Jessica Rosenworcel to become the permanent chair. This process comes with a deadline soon upon us- January 3rd. Mr. Falcon’s work focusing on: intellectual property, open Internet issues, broadband access, and competition policy offers a button-down appraisal of how the US squares with other countries in 2021, and how the nominee could bring the country up to speed. It’s not just you who’s saddled with poor internet at inordinately high fees; we are all feeling it.
