We are encouraged by the Commission’s action today to facilitate mobile internet use in the 2 GHz band. The events of the last two years have made clear that the challenges associated with finding additional spectrum for commercial use are significant. Yet there is no goal more important to the millions of customers who depend on the mobile internet.
Without additional spectrum in the hands of internet infrastructure companies, consumers will not be able to realize all the mobile internet has to offer. It is therefore imperative that the Commission expeditiously work to free up additional spectrum and unlock the value in bands that are currently under-utilized because of interference or service rule limitations
