Statement of NCTA – The Internet & Television Association Regarding the National Spectrum Strategy

“The National Spectrum Strategy appropriately recognizes the critical role that unlicensed spectrum and dynamic sharing solutions will play in making more spectrum available for commercial use and promoting innovation and competition across the marketplace for wireless services. While we acknowledge and support the Administration’s reaffirmance of this principle, we are concerned that further studies of the lower 3 GHz band could set aside the substantial contributions of the two‑year, multi-stakeholder study that already occurred, and threaten and delay the adoption of viable spectrum sharing approaches that will advance innovation and competition for consumers. We will continue to work closely with NTIA, the FCC and other stakeholders on expeditiously implementing a future-focused spectrum policy that supports next-generation technologies and seamless connectivity to benefit wireless consumers.”
