The Obama Administration signaled its intention to include a measure to expand wireless coverage and increase mobile spectrum as part of the American Jobs Act. Mobile Future Chairman Jonathan Spalter responded to the measure, stating:
“We applaud the President’s recognition of the crucial role mobile broadband can play in spurring job growth and boosting the nation’s economy. Recent data shows that making additional spectrum available for wireless will lead to 500,000 new jobs in America. We strongly encourage lawmakers to make more wireless spectrum available quickly to meet exploding consumer demand, fuel our technology-driven economy, and unleash investment and new economic opportunities.”
