WASHINGTON April 27, 2012 After the FCC ‘s April Open Meeting, CTIA-The Wireless Association ‘s President and CEO Steve Largent following statement on the Innovation in the Television Bands Report and Order:
"Today’s adoption of the Innovation in the Television Bands Report and Order by the FCC marks another important step to freeing up valuable spectrum so the U.S. wireless industry may meet Americans’ demand for mobile broadband services. By allowing broadcasters to share channels, the FCC is making TV spectrum license holders more efficient users of this finite resource. In turn, consumers will benefit as wireless providers will have an opportunity to purchase the repacked spectrum for billions at auction."
In response to today’s action by the FCC on Universal Service Fund, CTIA-The Wireless Association ‘s Assistant Vice President of Regulatory Affairs Scott Bergmann said:
