U.S. National Telecommunications and Information Administration Chief David Redl has resigned from his post, The Hill reports. Nominated to the NTIA by President Trump in May 2017, Redl acted as the White House’s point person on telecom policy, including broadband access and spectrum. "He was a vocal advocate within the Department of Commerce for repurposing federal spectrum for commercial use and fostering the private sector’s lead in 5G deployment. I thank David for his service and wish him all the best in his future endeavors," Republican Chairman of the Federal Communications Commission Ajit Pai said in a statement. An NTIA spokesperson announced that Diane Rinaldo, Redl's deputy, will assume Redl's post on an interim basis.
