“We applaud Acting Chairwoman Rosenworcel and the FCC for their swift action to bring the 3.45 GHz band to auction under a framework that will help build our 5G Economy and close the digital divide. Wireless services are helping to jump start our economic recovery, creating jobs and providing critical connections at a time when so much of our lives has moved online. Licensed mid-band spectrum plays a vital role in enabling our world-leading mobile networks, and we look forward to a successful auction later this year.”
