Letter to NTIA in Support of Balanced Spectrum Policy
Washington D.C., 17 April 2023
As NTIA works to develop a National Spectrum Strategy, the undersigned 15 public interest organizations and industry leaders urge NTIA to expand access to spectrum for commercial use through a balanced variety of approaches that will promote competition and innovation.
While our organizations represent a wide variety of perspectives, we all recognize the value of models supporting shared use, either through unlicensed use or licensed use that is dynamically shared on a priority basis. While exclusive-licensing plays a role in a balanced spectrum policy, an over-reliance on it serves the deployment decisions and business models of a small group of large, nationwide carriers. The innovation our country needs to make the most of spectrum moving forward will also require shared licensing and unlicensed spectrum. Unlicensed spectrum offers low barriers to entry for innovators, enables easy access for consumers and supports the Wi-Fi connections over which most internet data travels. Shared-licensed spectrum supports competitive wireless networks and other innovative and diverse uses, while also allowing multiple types of users to coexist.
Ensuring the upper 6 GHZ spectrum is made available for new generation WI-FI: major step towards the accomplishment of the EU’s digital decade connectivity objectives
Brussels, 18 November 2022
We, the signatories, representing a broad coalition (including industry associations, equipment manufacturers, chipset vendors, fiber operators, and content application services, entertainment, any remote applications based on Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, Mixed Reality technologies, also called eXtended Reality), convinced of the power of Wi-Fi in conjunction with fibre, and satellite technology to support Europe’s digital connectivity objectives, welcome the European Commission’s commitment in establishing an EU common position ahead of the World Radiocommunication Conference 2023 (WRC23).
Ensuring Wi-Fi Connectivity in an Innovative and Truly Connected European Gigabit Society
We, the signatories, representing a wide range of sectors (satellite, SMEs, start-ups, manufacturers, chipset vendors and content application services, video games sector) convinced of the power of Wi-Fi and satellite technology in supporting Europe’s digital transition, welcome the publication by the European Commission of its draft EU Digital Decade Policy Programme – which operationalises the 2030 Digital Compass.
Given its enabling function, we strongly support the priority given by the draft Policy Programme to achieving gigabit connectivity for EU citizens and businesses. Representing a diverse variety of users and providers of connectivity, we truly believe in an approach to connectivity that is technology neutral and promotes several advanced gigabit technologies, such as next generations Wi-Fi and satellite in addition to fibre and 5G…
