The 5Gfor12GHz Coalition is looking forward to working with the FCC to continue optimizing the 12 GHz band. The expansion of fixed broadband in this band is an important regulatory step, but only scratches the surface of the 12 GHz band’s potential.
The 12 GHz band represents a rare win-win for providers and consumers, but our nation’s spectrum regulators must continue their forward momentum, and work towards fully utilizing the 12 GHz band. The economic and societal benefits provided just by fixed broadband will be significant for today and tomorrow.
“[The Coalition has an] opportunity to show that we can meet the moment by using this spectrum to close the digital divide, federal funding through bead, and use of limited spectrum resources.” – Coalition Co-Chair Chip Pickering.
We look forward to engaging with regulators and policymakers as we work towards maximizing the use of our limited spectrum resources. Our coalition is committed to ensuring policies move to close the digital divide, spur U.S. leadership in 5G, and promote greater competition.
