That came following the Senate's confirmation late Tuesday of her nomination for a full, five-year term on the commission.
"It is an extraordinary honor to have the opportunity to serve on the Federal Communications Commission for another term," she said.
"On issues ranging from rural health care to interstate inmate calling rates, Commissioner Clyburn championed reform and substantially improved the Commission's work during her first term," said Republican commissioner Ajit Pai, who joined the commission at the same time. "Her engagement, collegiality, and commitment to the interests of consumers will continue to be vital assets to the Commission as we confront the challenges on our agenda."
"Commissioner Clyburn is a conscientious public servant and a thoughtful leader on communications issues important to the American public," said fellow Democratic commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel. "I look forward to working with her in the coming years as the Commission examines the changing communications landscape.
"We are pleased that the U.S. Senate approved Commissioner Mignon Clyburn to serve another term at the FCC," said AT&T senior VP and federal regulatory and chief privacy officer Bob Quinn. "Her dedication to public service, her independence, and her experience and knowledge will be instrumental if we are to bring the benefits of 21st century Internet broadband services to more Americans."
