“Today, the FCC adopted a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking that will help speed up the rollout of 5G broadband by paving the way for critical investment in the 3.5 GHz spectrum band.  This mid-band spectrum is intended to test a unique sharing model that combines different priority users in a single band.  The Commission’s proposed rule changes advance these goals by striking the right balance between Priority Access Licenses (PALs) and General Authorized Access (GAA) users, encouraging investment in the band and in the device ecosystem.  We thank Commissioner O’Rielly for his leadership on this item and for encouraging policies that take into account the concerns of all stakeholders and, most importantly, the needs of consumers across the United States.”
