Supporting the FCC’s Direction

By Brad

In a post on their website, the organization Women Impacting Public Policy (which is also one of our members) has applauded recent comments on spectrum from FCC Chairman Julius Genachowki:

The Chairman made clear he still favors clearing spectrum for auction, where appropriate, while an effort continues to explore new sharing ideas that have been developed. He correctly noted that it’s not “an either/or choice” - we will likely need to rely on both models to unlock the full value of our nation’s scarce spectrum resources.

WIPP agrees and supports the FCC’s direction on spectrum policy. The Commission has long led the way in acknowledging the spectrum challenges our nation faces.
