Statement of Michael Powell, President & CEO, NCTA – The Internet & Television Association, Regarding the FCC’s Approval to Enable Shared Unlicensed Use of the 6 GHz Band

“The Commission’s unanimous, bipartisan vote on 6 GHz will go a long way toward advancing the next generation of superfast Wi-Fi connectivity while also protecting TV production operations critical to providing American consumers with high-quality programming. Traffic forecasts show that the need for additional unlicensed spectrum is urgent, and now more than ever we’re working, learning, accessing health and financial services, staying entertained and informed, and remaining connected through our Wi-Fi networks. We thank the Commission for their tireless efforts to ensure that sufficient unlicensed spectrum is available to support growing demand for next-generation, high-speed Wi-Fi connectivity that will serve consumers for years to come.”
