Rep. Waxman Statement on FCC Vote to Make Available More Spectrum for Auction

(Targeted News Service Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) WASHINGTON, March 31 -- The Ranking Democratic Member of the House Energy and Commerce Committee issued the following news release: Rep. Waxman released the following statement on the spectrum-related items adopted by the FCC today: "I applaud the bipartisan, unanimous vote by the FCC to make available 65 MHz of prime spectrum for auction and to open up another 100 megahertz of spectrum in the 5 gigahertz band for Wi-Fi services." "Congress passed the Public Safety and Spectrum Act in 2012 directing the FCC to auction the AWS-3 band by 2015 and to expand Wi-Fi services in the 5 GHz band. I am very pleased that after years of hard work, including months of coordination between the Commission, the National Telecommunications Information Administration, and other federal users of the 1755-1780 megahertz band, we will be seeing an auction this fall to expand mobile broadband services and substantially pay for the first nationwide interoperable public safety broadband network known as FirstNet. The rules adopted by the Commission will also help promote device interoperability among large and small carriers winning the auction, while providing an opportunity for federal spectrum users to upgrade their systems and devices. This is a true win-win-win." Similarly, I am pleased that the Commission has taken yet another step to move our nation closer to high-speed "gigabit Wi-Fi" in the 5 GHz band while relieving existing congestion in unlicensed services. The FCC's actions today show that unlicensed and licensed spectrum can co-exist and make our nation a global leader in mobile broadband services. I want to thank Chairman Wheeler, the Commissioners, and the dedicated staff at the Wireless Bureau for working tirelessly to make more licensed and unlicensed broadband spectrum available today."
