by Sabrina I. Pacifici on October 24, 2010

“FCC released a white paper entitled Mobile Broadband: The Benefits of Additional Spectrum. This technical and economic forecast of mobile broadband market trends sets forth future spectrum needs in a concrete, data-driven fashion. This forecast demonstrates that the amount of mobile data demanded by American consumers is likely to exceed capacity of our wireless networks in the near-term, and that meeting this demand by making additional spectrum available is likely to create significant value for the economy. In addition, new mobile broadband spectrum will support innovation in other important areas – such as breakthrough tools to improve education through mobile online learning, enhancing health care through potentially life-saving remote diagnostics, and promoting energy efficiency by supporting the smart grid.”
