The following is a statement from Public Knowledge:


The National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) today asked the U.S. Appeals Court for the D.C. Circuit to dismiss its challenge to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) orders approving the use of TV ‘white spaces'.

The following is attributed to Harold Feld, legal director of Public Knowledge:

"We commend NAB for filing to dismiss its court challenge to the FCC's white spaces order. Assuming the court grants the motion, the last potential legal obstacle to the use of this valuable unlicensed spectrum will be removed and the innovations that are just beginning can continue to proceed with new confidence."

In 2015, the FCC will hold incentive auctions for wireless companies to bid on airwaves. More

Private sector access to the 3.5 GHz band and the initiation of the Citizens Broadband Service holds great potential for successful spectrum sharing that meets the demands of wireless broadband users. More
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.
