CTIA Statement on 37/39/47 GHz Auction PN .
“The FCC took another important step toward making additional high-band spectrum available and we’re glad Chairman Pai is announcing an auction date for these additional bands. This spectrum, along with mid-band spectrum the FCC is reviewing, is central to U.S. wireless providers’ ability to bring the benefits of 5G to consumers and businesses, and is a key component to seizing America’s opportunity to add nearly $400 billion to the economy and create over 1.8 million new jobs.”
