CTIA-The Wireless Association Statement in Response to the NAB's Broadcast Incentive Auction Lawsuit Against the FCC
August 18, 2014 --
WASHINGTON, Aug. 18, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Please attribute the following statement to CTIA-The Wireless Association Vice President of Regulatory Affairs Scott Bergmann:
"We continue to believe that the incentive auction will be a win for broadcasters, wireless companies and consumers, and that the FCC's order strikes the right balance to ensure that consumers emerge as winners.
"While we would prefer to work together collaboratively to address NAB's concerns rather than resort to litigation, we are hopeful the court addresses these issues quickly and that the NAB adheres to its commitment for an expedited process without unnecessary delays.
"As the FCC Commissioners, members of Congress and independent third party analysts continue to emphasize, the wireless industry needs more spectrum as soon as possible to be able to meet mobile broadband demand. To help meet that need, we will continue to work with the FCC, NAB and other affected stakeholders to ensure that the Commission is ready to hold the auction on schedule in mid-2015."
