Steven Rosenberg

Chief Data Officer
Federal Communications Commission

Steve Rosenberg has been the Chief Data Officer for the Wireline Competition Bureau at the Federal Communications Commission since the spring of 2010.  His focus is on improving the collection, analysis and dissemination of data to inform policy-making in the bureau. 

Steve has been heavily involved in reforms to the Universal Service Fund.  He has overseen the creation of the Connect America Cost Model, which is being used by the FCC to determine more than $14 billion in total disbursements to large and small telecom providers.  That work will continue in the upcoming CAF-2 auction.  He has also worked with E-rate program data to improve the Commission’s understanding of service prices and to evaluate the cost effectiveness of special-construction projects.

Steve has also been heavily involved with the collection and publication of broadband data.  He oversaw changes to the FCC’s Form 477 data collection adopted in 2013, which led to the Commission collecting broadband deployment data.  He continues to work to improve dissemination of broadband data, including publication of fixed-broadband deployment data maps.

Steve first joined the FCC in July, 2009 as part of the team working to create the National Broadband Plan, where he worked to quantify broadband availability and the costs associated with providing universal broadband access.  Prior to joining the Commission, Steve worked in the telecom practice at McKinsey & Company before working at The Advisory Board, serving not-for-profits in the healthcare and education sectors.  He earned a Ph.D. in Physics from UCLA in 1999.
