David Redl, Assistant Secretary for Communications and Information, and Administrator of the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) is reportedly resigning from his position. Assistant Secretary Redl was appointed by President Donald Trump in May 2017 and confirmed by the U.S. Senate in November 2017. As NTIA’s top man, Redl oversaw America’s spectrum policy. During his tenure at helm of NTIA, Redl promoted broadband funding and better mapping procedures to determine where in the US Internet service exists. Additionally, Assistant Secretary Redl advocated for greater spectrum sharing between government and commercial users. Redl’s departure came as a surprise to many FCC Commissioners.
