PCIA Responds to FCC Move on 3.5 GHz

April 17, 2015 / Alexandria, VA – Jonathan Adelsteinm President & CEO of PCIA – The Wireless Infrastructure Association issued the following statement today in response to the Federal Communications Commission’s adoption of spectrum-sharing rules that create a new three-tiered commercial radio service spanning 3550 MHz to 3700 MHz:

“PCIA is pleased that the FCC has approved a forward-thinking order that offers new opportunities to expand wireless capacity and coverage, which will help American consumers get better connected. While the FCC and the Administration must remain vigilant in seeking to clear more licensed spectrum under terms and lengths that spur investment, the FCC has provided a path to innovation in the 3.5 GHz band that will help ease the wireless data crunch, which will stimulate U.S. jobs and growth. The FCC’s focus on small wireless communications facilities such as small cells and DAS demonstrates its clear vision for our evolving heterogeneous networks. We look forward to future involvement in these matters.”
