WASHINGTON – Please attribute the following statement to CTIA® President and CEO, Meredith Attwell Baker. It follows the Senate’s passage of the Mobile NOW Act.
"CTIA and the wireless industry commend Senators Thune and Nelson on the passage of the Mobile NOW Act which takes much needed steps to maintain a strong spectrum pipeline for wireless consumers and business.
