Nov. 1, 2011 - PRLog -- PITTSBURGH, November 1, 2011 - ACA President & CEO Matthew M. Polka issued the following statement:

"ACA is pleased President Obama will nominate Jessica Rosenworcel and Ajit Pai to serve at the FCC. Both are talented individuals with a deep understanding of the digital economy and the vital role played by small and mid-sized cable operators in providing world-class communications services to hometown America.  

"The FCC requires leadership that understands and appreciates the needs of independent cable operators participating in a broadband-driven marketplace.  This marketplace is characterized by convergence, rapid technological change and, quite frankly, ongoing efforts by some market participants to use their economic power and incumbent regulatory preferences to limit choice and competition in both traditional and online distribution channels.

"ACA looks forward to working with the nominees in developing new approaches that modify outdated policies, such as the flawed retransmission consent regime, and that expand consumers' ability to access content and telecommunications services under the best terms and conditions possible."

About the American Cable Association: Based in Pittsburgh, the American Cable Association is a trade organization representing nearly 900 smaller and medium-sized, independent cable companies who provide broadband services for more than 7.6 million cable subscribers primarily located in rural and smaller suburban markets across America.  Through active participation in the regulatory and legislative process in Washington, D.C., ACA's members work together to advance the interests of their customers and ensure the future competitiveness and viability of their business.  For more information, visit http://www.americancable.org/
