After Greenhill & Co. released its report on the 600 MHz Incentive Auction, I issued the following statement:
“CTIA is encouraged by the release of the Greenhill Report, which is another important step toward meeting consumer demands for mobile broadband access via the Incentive Auction proceeding. As we transition from a policy issue to a business opportunity for thousands of broadcasters across the country, this report will underscore the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for broadcasters to monetize their spectrum assets. With our $53 billion track record of participating in spectrum auctions, the wireless industry will be active bidders in the incentive auction. While today’s U.S. wireless story is one of remarkable success, making additional spectrum available remains critical to promoting economic growth and enhancing our nation’s global competitiveness to benefit Americans.”
I released the following statement today:
“CTIA is encouraged by the FCC’s adoption of three additional incentive auction-related items at today’s open meeting. Countless studies and bipartisan policymakers recognize the need for additional spectrum to meet growing consumer demand and the integration of mobile broadband into important sectors of our economy, including education, health and transportation. A successful 600 MHz Incentive Auction is critical to meeting that need, and these proceedings will have an important role in ensuring we maximize the amount and usability of the spectrum repurposed for mobile broadband services. We commend the Commission’s efforts toward a successful auction by mid-2015 and look forward to working with the Commission and other stakeholders on these proceedings.”
