The following may be attributed to Joan Marsh, AT&T Vice President-Federal Regulatory:

“Last month, AT&T agreed to a voluntary industry framework that will resolve interoperability issues in the lower 700 MHz band. A critical prerequisite to the commitments made by AT&T is FCC action to harmonize the lower 700 MHz E Block, lowering permissible power limits to eliminate the potential for harmful interference. We are pleased to see the FCC moving swiftly to address these interference issues consistent with the negotiated solution. The action the Commission takes today, under continued leadership by Chairwoman Clyburn, is a critical step to achieving 700 MHz interoperability that will in turn foster industry investment and deployment in the 700 MHz band to the benefit of U.S. wireless consumers.”
