FTTH Council's Tatarka speaks out on the FCC telecom ruling

I'm catching up on posts from last week. Here's what Dan Tatarka of the Fiber to the Home Council had to say on the FCC's triennial review:

"'The broadband rules are brilliant,' added Dan Tatarka, co-chairman of the Council's Government Relations Committee. 'The FCC has skillfully crafted a structure that encourages facilities-based broadband investment, without disadvantaging any particular group. They are clearly putting the consumer first so that everyone wins,' Tatarka continued. 'In fact, one of the things I find most pleasing is the FCC's acknowledgment that the national adoption of FTTH is of paramount importance to our country's economic viability. This is a theme you can see over and over again.'"

Tatarka has been in the industry for years, first at Siecor, then Pirelli, and is one of the sharpest fiber cable engineers in the country.
