July 13, 2017

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

“The U.S. leads the world in 4G deployment.  The FCC’s Mobility Fund is critical to helping our industry reach unserved rural areas. We believe that a fair and efficient process to determine eligible rural areas begins with new data tailored for this purpose. We support the Commission’s Mobility Fund efforts and look forward to delivering mobile broadband services to unserved Americans.”
