CTIA’s Assistant Vice President for Policy, Doug Brake spoke with Georgetown’s Carolyn
Brandon and Jennifer Fritzsche this week about all things spectrum. The key takeaways are:
- Getting access to additional 5G mid-band Spectrum is “issue 1 through 10” for CTIA.
- The U.S. lags China and other competitors when it comes to having access to more 5G mid-band which threatens US leadership in mobile-driven innovation and economic growth.
- In addition to working with Congress, the FCC, NTIA and other interested stakeholders on identifying suitable 5G midband spectrum, CTIA is also working on a myriad of other issues facing the U.S. mobile industry including continued funding for ACP, state-based taxes and fees, privacy issues and more.
