Advances in mobile technology have spurred new business models, created 1.5 million jobs and improved education, health care, and public safety in the United States. For the United States to stay in the lead on LTE adoption, we need advances in semiconductor technology, software, and spectrum reallocation. Unfortunately when it comes to spectrum reallocation, recent and pending public policy decisions on re-purposing spectrum for more innovative uses lack consistency. In some cases, policy decisions have supported innovation and efficient use but in many other cases have moved the ball backward.

Join ITIF and a distinguished group of public officials deeply involved in designing spectrum policy for a discussion of ITIF's new report on the principles that should guide spectrum allocation.
