Statement of NCTA – The Internet & Television Association Regarding the FCC’s Office of Engineering and Technology’s 5.9 GHz Test Results

“OET's test report makes it clear that Wi-Fi can operate safely in the 5.9 GHz band. With this testing complete, and a congressional mandate to free up new spectrum for unlicensed uses, now is the time to move forward. Given fundamental changes in both the wireless broadband and automotive safety landscapes, the FCC should take a fresh look at how 5.9 GHz spectrum can be an important element in delivering gigabit Wi-Fi and fulfilling our nation’s agenda of delivering ubiquitous broadband to all Americans.”
