“We thank Chairman Pai and the FCC for taking this important step to make more spectrum available for 5G wireless services. This auction is a critical opportunity for the deployment of next-generation networks, representing the largest amount of contiguous spectrum available in the millimeter-wave bands. Combined with the additional mid-band spectrum the FCC is reviewing, this auction will help meet the growing demands of today’s wireless users and ensure the U.S. continues to lead in 5G.”
