Today, Senators Cory Gardner (R-Colo.) and Maggie Hassan (D-N.H.) introduced the Advancing Innovation and Reinvigorating Widespread Access to Viable Electromagnetic Spectrum Act, or the ”AIRWAVES Act.” The following may be attributed to Tim McKone, AT&T Executive Vice President of Federal Relations:

“AT&T congratulates Senators Gardner and Hassan for introducing a unique bill to address the pressing need for spectrum to support next-generation 5G broadband networks.  The bill identifies the spectrum bands required to make 5G a reality and provides certainty that this spectrum will be auctioned in time to meet the 5G rollout.  The consumer and economic benefits of 5G technologies are tremendous and this legislation will enable the United States to maintain its leadership role in this space.  We look forward to working with Senators Gardner and Hassan as this bill moves through Congress.”
