CTIA Statement on High Band Spectrum Roadmap

July 14, 2017

WASHINGTON – Please attribute the following to CTIA® Vice President of Regulatory Affairs Scott Bergmann:

“CTIA’s High Bands Roadmap provides a clear path for the FCC to finish the work started in the agency’s 2016 Spectrum Frontiers Order and would help ensure U.S. 5G leadership. The Roadmap strikes a balanced approach benefiting all stakeholders, including the satellite industry, and delivers nearly 20 gigahertz for both terrestrial and satellite licensees.  For wireless carriers, at least 15 gigahertz of that spectrum would be licensed in large contiguous blocks to support new services for Americans."
