Statement from Vice President, Government and Public Affairs Matt Mandel:

“WIA applauds the FCC’s unanimous decision today to free up 100 MHz of mid-band spectrum. The consistent leadership in promoting 5G deployment provides incentives to invest in wireless infrastructure to meet consumer needs for more and more data. Access to spectrum is critical for speeding America toward winning the race to 5G and all the jobs and economic growth that come to the winner.”
