CTIA Statement on the Federal Spectrum Incentive Act

Following the reintroduction of the Federal Spectrum Incentive Act, I said:  “CTIA welcomes the reintroduction of the Federal Spectrum Incentive Act, which is the type of forward-thinking bipartisan spectrum policy that we need to meet our nation’s commercial and government spectrum needs. The demand for additional commercial spectrum is well-documented and when federal spectrum isn’t […]

CTIA Statement on the Broadband Opportunity Council

Following President Obama’s announcement of the Broadband Opportunity Council, I said:  “Today, President Obama acknowledged that 98 percent of Americans have access to 4G/LTE service, further confirmation that Americans benefit from a dynamically competitive wireless industry that continuously provides consumers with faster network speeds, more coverage and more capacity. We fully support the White House’s laudable […]

Open Internet Order: A Harmful Decision Curing No Harms

In our posts earlier this week on wireless competition, switching costs and consumer-friendly mobile services, we explained how the Open Internet Order places the FCC far from its historic role as a data-driven expert agency engaged in fact-based decision making. Today, we show how that same pattern holds true in its discussion of harms – […]

Open Internet Order: “Mother, May I Innovate?”

Following the reintroduction of the Wi-Fi Innovation Act in the Senate, I said: “CTIA appreciates Senator Rubio’s and Senator Booker’s leadership in pushing to make additional spectrum available for unlicensed use. Freeing additional spectrum in the 5 gigahertz band will help meet Americans’ increasing demand for mobile Internet access and support the growth of the […]

Mobile Usage Continues to Increase + Projections Say Skyrocketing Demand = More Spectrum Required

Earlier this week, Cisco published its Visual Networking Index: Global Mobile Data Forecast Update 2014-2019 and its VNI Mobile Forecast Highlights 2014-2019. This latest data once again confirms two trends with important implications for spectrum policy: more people using more devices and more data-heavy applications are driving more mobile traffic. Cisco’s data makes clear that […]
