WIA Statement on the Passage of the 5G SALE Act 

ARLINGTON, Va. – Please attribute the following statement to WIA President and CEO Patrick Halley.

“I’m pleased to see the passage of the 5G SALE Act, which unlocks spectrum for next generation communications services. While I appreciate that the rightful winners of the 2.5 GHz licenses will no longer be held hostage, it’s imperative that Congress restore the FCC’s auction authority with a long-term reauthorization. Anything less will continue to hamper the advancement of America’s mobile communications and put us in the competitive backseat against China and other global competitors.”
