Powering the Mobile Revolution: Principles of Spectrum Allocation
Information Technology & Innovation Foundation
Tuesday, July 31, 2012
12:00 - 1:30 PM
Advances in mobile technology have spurred new business models, created 1.5 million jobs and improved education, health care, and public safety in the United States. For the United States to stay in the lead on LTE adoption, we need advances in semiconductor technology, software, and spectrum reallocation. Unfortunately when it comes to spectrum reallocation, recent and pending public policy decisions on re-purposing spectrum for more innovative uses lack consistency. In some cases, policy decisions have supported innovation and efficient use but in many other cases have moved the ball backward.
Join ITIF and a select group of public officials deeply involved in designing spectrum policy to maximize innovation for a discussion of ITIF's new spectrum allocation report and the issues policymakers face going forward.
