Statement: Spectrum Frontiers

July 14, 2016

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, the Federal Communications Commission adopted rules freeing up high band spectrum for wireless broadband use. 

The following statement should be attributed to Jonathan Spalter, Chair of Mobile Future. 

“In our increasingly connected world, opening up new swaths of spectrum for 5G networks is critical to support ever-growing consumer demand and increasing number of connected devices.  With 5G expected to touch virtually every aspect of our economy and revolutionize how we communicate, we appreciate the FCC’s decision today to help pave the way for continued U.S. global leadership in wireless.  The Commission’s actions are bold steps to ensure an ever-brighter mobile future for all Americans.”
