Today’s final article in David Goldman’s series on the spectrum crunch for CNN Money shows that he gets it — there is no “catch-all fix.” It is promising, though, that wireless carriers are actively seeking solutions to the spectrum shortage that will enable continued innovation in the industry and allow them to better serve their customers. These users’ quality of service on their iPhones, Androids, BlackBerries and tablets will significantly improve when wireless carriers, as pointed out by Goldman’s piece, bid on spectrum at auction and kick the build-out of networks into high gear.

Yet another benefit: this investment by wireless companies means more U.S. jobs. Wireless companies winning spectrum is a win for American consumers and the American economy — the FCC should act quickly to set these open incentive spectrum auctions in motion.
