Spectrum Policy for Innovation

September 13, 2011

ITIF unveils a report that advocates a set of policies that will make more spectrum available to innovative uses. It proposes to accelerate the re-assignment of spectrum from legacy single-purpose networks such as over-the-air TV to high-demand, multi-purpose networks such as mobile broadband. Incentive auctions, a second DTV transition, clear spectrum rights, and reassignment of government spectrum to public use are key recommendations.
