CTIA Statement on Introduction of Beat CHINA for 5G Act .
“We applaud Senators Wicker and Thune and Representatives Walden, Latta and Guthrie for their leadership and dedicated efforts to ensure America continues to lead the world in wireless. The Beat CHINA for 5G Act rightfully focuses on the critical importance of private-sector solutions and auctioning commercial spectrum that will preserve the U.S. as the leader in 5G. Quickly bringing the 3.45-3.55 GHz band to auction is critical to fueling our transition to a 5G economy, and this legislation recognizes the urgent need to put this valuable resource to its best and most efficient use.”
