Statement of NCTA – The Internet & Television Association Regarding the D.C. Circuit’s Decision on the FCC’s 5.9 GHz Order

“The D.C. Circuit’s decision to uphold the FCC’s 5.9 GHz order is an enormous victory for American consumers.  The Commission’s unanimous, bipartisan order modernizes a band that was primarily unused for over 20 years, and today’s court decision enables that important 5.9 GHz spectrum to provide consumers with even more reliable high-speed Wi-Fi and access to next-generation automotive safety applications.  We look forward to working with the Commission to build on this positive momentum and complete the 5.9 GHz proceeding.”
