CNN’s Spectrum Spotlight

This week CNN Money is taking a close look at America’s looming spectrum crunch. The first article in the week-long series was released today and points to consumer’s insatiable demand for wireless services and technologies as a contributing factor to the growing spectrum deficit.   

As David Goldman writes in the article:

“The spectrum crunch is not an inherently American problem, but its effects are magnified here, since the United States has an enormous population of connected users. This country serves more than twice as many customers per megahertz of spectrum as the next nearest spectrum-constrained nations, Japan and Mexico.

When spectrum runs short, service degrades sharply: calls get dropped and data speeds slow down.”
