The following may be attributed to Joan Marsh, AT&T Executive Vice President of Regulatory & State External Affairs:

“Expanding broadband services to more Americans is one of AT&T’s highest priorities, and we appreciate the Commission’s efforts to promote broader and more efficient use of spectrum to reach this goal.  We look forward to commenting on today’s proposal to allow unlicensed use of the 6 GHz band, while protecting existing users from harmful interference.  And we are encouraged by the progress being made by industry to develop a sharing proposal with the unlicensed community that ultimately could allow coexistence of Wi-Fi-type devices and microwave links.  But it is imperative that any unlicensed use must be responsible for avoiding interference with the existing, mission-critical uses of this band.”
