Verizon's Silliman: Wheeler's regulatory approach at FCC has been a mixed bag

Craig Silliman, EVP of Public Policy and General Counsel of Verizon (NYSE: VZ), said in an interview with FierceTelecom that FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler's "proactive and aggressive approach is a mixed bag." On one hand, the FCC has been proactive with its moves related to 5G, but the regulator's stance on privacy is concerning, Silliman said.

Sean Buckley, senior editor of FierceTelecom, caught up with Silliman during the TIA 2016 trade show in Dallas to talk about the pressing policy issues Verizon is dealing with today.
