Rosenworcel: FCC Must Promote All Spectrum Bands for Unlicensed Uses [telecom]

By Paul Barbagallo, Bloomberg BNA [from Telecommunications Law Resource Center(TM)], May 6, 2014.

The Federal Communications Commission must continue to craft policies that promote all spectrum bands --- high, mid, and low --- for unlicensed uses, Democratic FCC Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel said.

In remarks at an event sponsored by WifiForward, an industry group whose members include Google Inc. and Comcast Corp., Rosenworcel voiced strong support for what she described as an "unlicensed spectrum game plan"--new strategies that, in her view, "deserve attention up front, in policy prime time."

"It should no longer be an afterthought in our spectrum policy," she said.

Rosenworcel's latest remarks come less than two weeks before the FCC's May 15 meeting, where the agency will vote on rules that will govern the first-ever incentive auction of spectrum scheduled to take place in 2015.
