MetroPCS Joins Competitive Carriers Association

Washington, DC – CCA (Competitive Carriers Association) welcomes MetroPCS Communications, Inc. as its newest carrier member.  Mark A. Stachiw, executive vice president, general counsel and secretary of MetroPCS, was also appointed to CCA’s Board of Directors.  MetroPCS is the fifth largest facilities-based wireless carrier in the United States and with Metro USASM, MetroPCS customers can use their services in areas throughout the United States covering a population of over 280 million people and as of December 31, 2010, MetroPCS served over 8.1 million subscribers.

In a statement, CCA President & CEO Steven K. Berry said, “We are delighted that MetroPCS has joined CCA and that Mark Stachiw has been appointed to our Board of Directors.  As a leader in the transition to 4G LTE networks, we look forward to having MetroPCS join our continued initiative to ensure that all Americans, no matter where they live or travel, have access to the latest, most advanced broadband services and devices.  Many issues such as allocation of additional spectrum, data roaming, interoperability throughout the 700 MHz spectrum, and USF are yet to be decided upon by policymakers, and a strong CCA membership will certainly enhance our voice in Washington.”

“We are pleased to join CCA, as we have many of the same policy concerns such as allocation of additional spectrum, data roaming, interoperability, and network neutrality,” said Stachiw.  “It is important that competitive carriers such as MetroPCS have a voice in Washington, DC, and CCA is on the forefront of many issues critical to the wireless industry.  We look forward to joining CCA’s efforts on Capitol Hill and at the FCC.”
