CEA Applauds Reintroduction of Wireless Innovation Act


Reading time ( words)

The following statement is attributed to Gary Shapiro, president and CEO, Consumer Electronics Association (CEA), regarding the reintroduction of the Wireless Innovation Act by Senators Marco Rubio (R-FL), Roger Wicker (R-MS), Kelly Ayotte (R-NH), Cory Gardner (R-CO) and Ron Johnson (R-WI):

“The Wireless Innovation Act is an important step to ensure our commercial supply of spectrum can meet consumer demand, and we commend Senators Rubio, Wicker, Ayotte, Gardner and Johnson for continuing to champion such a forward-looking approach. By reallocating underutilized government spectrum for commercial use, this bill will provide new ways to meet our ever-growing demand for ‘anytime/anywhere’ connectivity.

“Tech entrepreneurs, innovators, businesses and consumers need spectrum to prosper. Spectrum helps fuel the U.S. economy and create jobs. Federal regulation and policies governing the allocation of spectrum should reflect its value to innovation and the economy. This bill will allow underused spectrum to be redeployed in innovative ways and represents a thoughtful 21st-century spectrum policy.”
