“Our ability to unlock additional spectrum is critical to the deployment of next-generation networks,” said Rep. Doris Matsui (D-Calif.). “With this fix, the FCC can continue to hold auctions that will help free up more spectrum for commercial use and propel our online economy forward. I’m pleased that we were able to advance this legislation as part of the FCC’s reauthorization, and thank Congressman Guthrie for his continued work on this important issue.”

"This package represents a bipartisan, bicameral compromise that both makes good on a promise to broadcasters to hold harmless full power television and radio broadcasters in the incentive auction and puts the country on an important path towards leadership in 5G," said FCC Commissioner Michael O'Rielly."
