Americans use wireless in new innovative ways, which means more data over wireless networks. In order to meet Americans’ growing demand by 2020, we need more than 350 megahertz of licensed spectrum. #MoreSpectrum will help America remain the global leader in wireless.
CTIA-The Wireless Association® believes that the U.S. must identify and allocate additional licensed spectrum for commercial wireless use in order to meet the growing demand by consumers and businesses for mobile wireless broadband services.
Spectrum is the backbone of the wireless industry -- without it, the applications, speed, devices and other innovations of the wireless ecosystem could be in jeopardy. Even though the U.S. is the world's most efficient commercial spectrum user, the current rate of industry growth and consumer demand for wireless broadband will quickly outpace carriers' network capacity. Each year, wireless carriers are investing billions of dollars to meet rapidly growing consumer demand.
