President-elect Donald Trump named David Morken, co-founder of Republic Wireless, to join his FCC transition team, Fortune reports.
Morken is the first member of the team that has not outwardly criticized net neutrality rules the Obama administration passed in 2015.
Net neutrality rules prevent internet providers from charging websites like Netflix and Facebook a fee to access users at faster speeds.
Morken may have been chosen to help balance a team that is clearly looking to make changes at the FCC, including potentially repealing net neutrality rules.
In November, Trump appointed Jeff Eisenach and Mark Jamison to his transition team to help oversee his telecom policy agenda. Both Eisenach and Jamison are long-time opponents of the network neutrality rules. Though the roles are just advisory, they could indicate policy changes to come.
Dissolving net neutrality rules would be a benefit to internet providers, but a setback for companies that stream or transfer large amounts of content.
