WASHINGTON, D.C. – In a letter sent today to leaders of the Senate Commerce and House Energy and Commerce committees, the National Cable & Telecommunications Association (NCTA) said accusations that cable operators are hoarding wireless spectrum are “flat wrong” and “nothing more than a finger-pointing exercise transparently designed to distract policymakers from the important task of evaluating national spectrum policy.”

The truth is, that in addition to spending tens of billions of dollars over the past decade to bring innovative wireline broadband services to the American public, the cable industry has also rolled up its sleeves and invested in wireless businesses across a range of technologies and business models.
