AT&T Statement on Bicameral Bill to Open Mid-Band Spectrum for Commercial Use

The following may be attributed to Tim McKone, Executive Vice President of Federal Relations, AT&T.

“We commend Ranking Member Walden, Ranking Member Latta, Ranking Member Guthrie, Chairman Wicker and Chairman Thune for introducing legislation designating valuable mid-band spectrum to be auctioned for 5G deployment. This legislation follows a letter signed last week by 19 senators who expressed concerns about deviating from the proven path of auction and private sector-led 5G deployment. Consistent with these views in Congress, the Administration should continue with this successful and established model to ensure that the U.S. can continue to lead the world in 5G, bringing consumers and businesses the robust mobile connectivity they demand.”
