IIA today released a statement on the FCC’s adoption of the Report and Order “Transforming the 2.5 GHz Band for 5G” at its July Open Meeting:

The Internet Innovation Alliance commends the Federal Communications Commission for taking action today to fuel American leadership in the race to 5G. By holding an overlay auction of the 2.5 GHz EBS spectrum band, valuable mid-band spectrum will be freed for flexible use, helping to ensure American global dominance in next-generation connectivity and accelerating transformative technologies, including the Internet of Things (IoT).”
