The following statement may be attributed to the Wireless Innovation Alliance. 

The Wireless Innovation Alliance looks forward to working with the Commission to make the 5 GHz band more useful for unlicensed users. Today’s notice of proposed rulemaking represents a step in the right direction. As the Commission moves forward with this and other proceedings, it should also recognize the need for both unlicensed and licensed spectrum at different frequency ranges across the spectrum bands to support and maximize all applications and innovations.

The Wireless Innovation Alliance (WIA) is a broad-based group of innovators, providers, consumer groups, think tanks and education organizations that believe that more efficient use and expanded access to the nation’s spectrum resources are fundamental to the future of U.S. economic policy and global competitiveness, and that we face potential spectrum scarcities in both licensed and unlicensed bands that must be addressed in order for innovation and investment to move forward.
