Philip Falcone, Chief Executive Officer of Harbinger Capital Partners, Statement on the Federal Communications Commission's Broadband Policies
NEW YORK, June 17
NEW YORK, June 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Philip Falcone, Chief Executive Officer of Harbinger Capital Partners (HCP) today released the following statement addressing the Federal Communications Commission's (FCC) broadband policies:
"I understand that there has been a fair amount of debate about the regulatory framework that the FCC has chosen for broadband Internet services. I'm not a lawyer and can't get into the fine points of the Communications Act. But I live my life in the financial world and I have made a substantial investment in what I expect will be a major new broadband wireless network in the United States. In that respect, I can say that the FCC's broadband policies continue to actively encourage Harbinger's and others' multi-billion dollar investment in broadband innovation. It's a truism that investment goes where it is welcome and this FCC, under Chairman Genachowski's leadership, has gotten it right."
