RAY BAUM’s Act Will Benefit Next Generation of Wireless Networks

March 6, 2018

WASHINGTON, DC – In response to the House’s approval of RAY BAUM’s Act, the following statement should be attributed to Rob McDowell, Chief Public Policy Advisor of Mobile Future:

“Building on the bipartisan work in the Energy and Commerce Committee, today the House approved RAY BAUM’s Act. The inclusion of spectrum provisions from Senator Thune’s Mobile Now Act is welcome progress for America’s next generation wireless networks. Also among the bill’s many important provisions is language that will allow the FCC to conduct the new spectrum auctions that FCC Chairman Pai announced last week. This continued focus on the tools we need to be 5G ready is good news for innovators, consumers and investment in our mobile economy.”
