Statement of NCTA – The Internet & Television Association Regarding FCC Action on C-band and 3.5 GHz Spectrum

“The Commission’s actions today on C-band and 3.5 GHz spectrum represent an important milestone in enabling mid-band resources for next-generation wireless networks. NCTA applauds the Commission’s efforts to balance the need for more wireless broadband spectrum with a commitment to protect video programming delivery systems that today rely on the C-band to transmit cable and broadcast content to more than 100 million American households. NCTA also welcomes the adoption of auction procedures for the 3.5 GHz band that embrace bidding on right-size licenses to set Auction 105 up for success. We urge the Commission to turn its attention now to the mid-band pipeline for unlicensed use, and look forward to near-term action on the 5.9 and 6 GHz bands.”
