ARLINGTON, Va. – The following statement can be attributed to WIA President and CEO Jonathan Adelstein.

“Throughout his time in the House, Greg Walden has been one of Congress’s foremost leaders on broadband deployment. His commitment to innovation and U.S. wireless leadership is irreplaceable. As Chairman and as Ranking Member of the Energy and Commerce Committee, he worked tirelessly to streamline the siting process for wireless infrastructure, having a huge impact on the success of 4G and setting the table for 5G deployment. We wish Rep. Walden all the best in his retirement. He’ll be sorely missed.”
