CTIA-The Wireless Association® Response to NAB’s Spectrum Letter
WASHINGTON, May 9, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Please attribute the following statement to CTIA-The Wireless Association® Vice President of Government Affairs Jot Carpenter:
“The flat-earthers at NAB are at it again, denying the existence of a spectrum crunch that experts across the developed world recognize as the most serious challenge facing the mobile industry. While the NAB is committed to its ‘deny and delay’ strategy, the mobile industry is working to deploy the most efficient technologies available, building new infrastructure at a record pace, and engage with policymakers – including the members of the Spectrum Working Group – to identify and move to market spectrum that can help the U.S. maintain and extend our world leadership in wireless broadband.”
