The Wireless Infrastructure Association (WIA) issued the following statement from President and CEO Jonathan Adelstein regarding the FCC’s action today on mid-band spectrum.
“The FCC’s unanimous vote to identify opportunities to make mid-band spectrum in the 3.7 – 4.2 GHz band available for expanded flexible use will help promote U.S. leadership in 5G deployment and expand broadband across the country. I am pleased that the FCC continues to make additional spectrum available to support next generation wireless services. Wireless infrastructure plays an important role in the rollout of 5G, and the FCC’s efforts recognize that role. We look forward to continuing to work with the Commission as this item moves forward.”
