The Wireless Innovation Alliance (WIA) released the statement below in response to the introduction of the House and Senate Wi-Fi Innovation Act:

The Wireless Innovation Alliance commends Sens. Rubio and Booker and Reps. Latta, Eshoo, Issa, Matsui and DelBene on the introduction of the House and Senate Wi-Fi Innovation Act. The Act directs the FCC to study the feasibility of opening the 5850-5925 MHz band for unlicensed use, allowing wireless users to more effectively utilize this limited resource, while creating a study to evaluate policies and practices that could increase the availability of Wi-Fi deployments in low-income communities.

This bipartisan effort to open up additional unlicensed spectrum demonstrates that many in the 114th Congress truly understand the crucial role unlicensed spectrum plays both in our nation's wireless future and as a vital economic driver. We applaud Sens. Rubio and Booker and Reps. Latta, Eshoo, Issa, Matsui and DelBene for their commitment to expanding access to this resource for the benefit of the countless American innovators and consumers who rely upon it.
