A word from...

Commissioner Michael J. Copps

Dear Honorable Brewer,

Thank you for your very kind invitation to address the inaugural meeting of the New York City Broadband Advisory Committee, on Friday, March 30. Unfortunately I am not able to be in New York that day because of scheduling conflicts and I must therefore decline.

I am however delighted to learn of your initiative in pursuit of "expanding and universalizing" broadband access. I am testifying on this very subject before the U.S. Senate Commerce Committee this week, believing as I do that this must be a high national priority if our communities and our country are going to be competitive and successful in the 21st century. I wish you well in your endeavour and again, thank you for thinking of me.

Warm regards,

Michael J. Copps
Federal Communications Commission
