More Spectrum for Wireless: Win-Win-Win for Consumers, Government and Companies

Yesterday, FCC Chairman Wheeler and FCC Commissioner O’Rielly were sworn in, which means we have a full Commission.

Based on independent reports, wireless usage – from consumers to the Internet of Things (or M2M) – will only [...]

Spectrum: The Backbone of Wireless: September WOW Policy Point

Wireless technology is connecting people and homes in previously unimaginable ways. Spectrum is the fuel that makes this wireless connection possible, but it’s a finite resource that is highly valued.  That’s why the wireless industry has been calling for the government to take unused and underutilized spectrum and auction it for its highest and best [...]

The Misguided Diversion on Spectrum by NAB

In an incredible example of misplaced focus, the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) recently asked the FCC to collect more data on spectrum usage to “determine whether the spectrum crisis is, in fact, real.” It is disappointing to see that NAB continues to question the findings of numerous government and industry experts, and indeed the [...]

U.S. is (Still) the World’s 4G Wireless Leader

CTIA Statement on the Introduction of Matsui-Guthrie 1755-1780 MHz Spectrum Bill

After U.S. Representatives Doris Matsui (D-CA-6) and Brett Guthrie (R-KY-2) introduced a bill that would reallocate 1755-1780 MHz spectrum band so commercial wireless companies could purchase it at auction from the U.S. government, I issued the following statement: “CTIA greatly appreciates Congresswoman Matsui’s and Congressman Guthrie’s leadership. Reallocating the 1755 to 1780 megahertz band for [...]

A Renewed – And Much Needed – Focus on Federal Spectrum

With an anticipated House Energy and Commerce Committee hearing on federal government use of spectrum tomorrow, we are entering an important phase in the effort to make more efficient use of our limited spectrum supply and to infuse the commercial mobile wireless ecosystem with the spectrum needed to drive the economy, innovation and jobs.
