Senate Omnibus Package Will Benefit Our Mobile Economy

March 23, 2018

WASHINGTON, DC – In response to the Senate’s passage of the omnibus spending bill, the following statement should be attributed to Rob McDowell, Chief Public Policy Advisor of Mobile Future:

“Today’s government funding deal is good news for every American and especially for our mobile economy. The omnibus package includes critical language to facilitate the roll out of next generation networks across the nation. The MOBILE NOW Act and Spectrum Auction Deposits Act give the FCC the tools to free up more of the nation’s airwaves for innovation and investment in the wireless ecosphere. Every American consumer stands to benefit from policies that help us win the global competition for 5G.”
