13 Free Market Groups Applaud FCC for C-Band Efforts
Taxpayers Protection Alliance partnered with thirteen additional free-market groups to send a letter to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) regarding their efforts to free up the 3.7 to 4.2 GHz Band (mid-band, or “C-band”) for internet services. Repurposing C-band spectrum for mobile broadband deployment will help America win the race to 5G, as other countries study repurposing their own mid-band spectrum for internet use. A number of groups, including the C-band Alliance (CBA), claim that the FCC should allow for a “private-sale” of this critical segment of spectrum, instead of having the FCC repurpose the spectrum to help close the digital divide.
