ALEXANDRIA, VA – Today, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) voted to expand flexible use of the 3.7 to 4.2 GHz spectrum band as part of its ongoing efforts to encourage U.S. leadership in the next generation of wireless services, including 5G.  In response, Center for Individual Freedom (CFIF) President Jeff Mazzella issued the following statement:

"FCC action to make spectrum in the 3.7-4.2 GHz band available for mobile use underscores the importance of mid-band spectrum to making America #5gReady. With today’s vote, along with ongoing efforts to streamline infrastructure policy, the FCC is making great progress that will help pave the way for tremendous economic and technological expansion."
