The United States has a unique opportunity to seize control of its Internet future. In our modernizing and technologically advanced world, there is no reason to think that the Internet is not going to have a place at the forefront of society in the years to come.
In order to ensure that the US is leading the charge on this front, it is vitally important that we continue to open up swaths of broadband spectrum.
There is currently a wireless auction of 600 mHZ spectrum happening, but this is merely the first step in what needs to be a grand spiral staircase in the pursuit of bold innovation. If the FCC manages to keep a constant flow of spectrum to data providers, the possibilities will be endless.
There is currently bipartisan agreement amongst the Commissioners at the FCC that the success of the 4G LTE networks needs to be replicated for future 5G networks. This success came from the FCC’s willingness to auction off 4G spectrum.
