CTIA Statement on Facilitating Shared Use in the 3.1-3.55 GHz Band .
“We thank Chairman Pai, the FCC, White House and Department of Defense for taking quick, decisive action to accelerate our transition to a new 5G economy by moving forward with plans to auction 100 megahertz of lower 3 GHz spectrum, at full power levels, next year. The long-standing commitment to private-sector approaches and auctioning exclusive use, commercial licensed spectrum is critical to maintaining America’s wireless leadership and the reason why we benefit from multiple nationwide 5G networks today.”
