Re: He's Actually Said One Thing That Might Be Important.
Exactly. And this will be a great great thing once we stipulate that all boxes must be branded with a certain name in solid gold letters.

"And we will get China to pay for it all."

And the scary thing is that China would gladly pay tens of billions of dollars to put a Chinese telco in the US with tens of thousands of Huawei/ZTE basestations across the US.

He will have the Best People working on this. And the results will be Very Very Amazing. And we will get China to pay for it all. That much I can tell you.

Well Wheeler's term isn't up til 2018. Unless Trump wins and tries to change the rules/term limits. But that's a lot of ifs and maybes though.

Re: He's Actually Said One Thing That Might Be Important.
I saw a CNN piece on people working for both campaigns to get the 4K or so political appointees lined up for transition.  I can't imagine that FCC Chairman is in the top 100 but might be in the top 400.

Re: He's Actually Said One Thing That Might Be Important.
Yeah, I noted that below. And as the telecom analyst I spoke to mentioned, there's a lot of nervousness in DC about who a Trump FCC chair might be since he's left few clues.

Re: He's Actually Said One Thing That Might Be Important.
Sure, but the next president -- whoever that is -- will get to appoint the new FCC chair.

Re: He's Actually Said One Thing That Might Be Important.
So not to go all fact-y on you or anything, but FCC appointments have terms and there are limits to what one president can do. The terms are five years, and the president is technically only supposed to name the chair. 

But if Trump wins, he may change the rules entirely.

He's Actually Said One Thing That Might Be Important.
Remember when he said he would sweep Obama appointees in govt. out ASAP. We can only imagine what a Trump-driven FCC might look like.

Otherwise its nonsensical stuff like getting Bill Gates to shut down the Internet.
