Wireless Innovation Alliance Statement on 5 GHz NPRM
Feb. 20, 2013  |   Wireless Innovation Alliance

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.
