Genachowski Pushes for Swift Movement on Spectrum During CTIA Show

Orlando, Fla. – FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski Tuesday brought his call for moving swiftly to
free up more wireless spectrum home to a roomful of big fans, the
International CTIA show in Orlando, the wireless companies who have been pushing
the FCC hard to make that happen.

In his keynote speech, the chairman,
using a tablet as a teleprompter, said it was like Tomorrowland had been moved
from Disney World to the Orange County Convention Center. “Broadband is no
longer a luxury,” he said, and unleashing spectrum is a national priority. The
broadband adoption rate is 67%, that is too low, he said, and the cost of the
U.S.’s competitiveness could be severe.
