“We applaud Chairman Pai and the FCC for taking the next step toward making mid-band spectrum in the 3.7-4.2 GHz band available to meet growing demand for mobile broadband services. Other countries are moving quickly to bring mid-band spectrum to market, so today’s action is a positive step toward increasing America’s competitiveness in the global race to 5G.
