WASHINGTON, D.C. – In response to the circulation by FCC Chairman Ajit Pai of a draft order that would auction of a portion of C-band spectrum for wireless usage, the following statement can be attributed to NAB Executive Vice President of Communications Dennis Wharton:
“Today marks an important step towards ensuring a stable C-band ecosystem following reallocation – one that makes significant spectrum available for mobile use while protecting content distribution relied upon by hundreds of millions of Americans today. In this and other spectrum proceedings, NAB has played a leading role developing constructive solutions that provide meaningful benefits to all stakeholders. We look forward to reviewing details of today’s plan and working with the FCC towards a solution that benefits both current and new users of the spectrum band.”
