Why the Government Needs to Free Up More Spectrum

February 20, 2013

The team over at MyWireless.org released a comical new video last week, illustrating just how crowded wireless data networks have gotten. As former NTU Vice President of Government Affairs Andrew Moylan noted back in May, there is a near “unanimous agreement” that more spectrum should be made available in order to build out America’s telecommunications networks, but big government (shocker!) and special interests have so far caused massive headaches for wireless companies and consumers. The tech community has made clear that we could soon face a debilitating bottleneck without swift action to reallocate spectrum where is it most needed. As telecommunications usage continues to grow, it’s important that taxpayers are educated on this issue.
