“As we have been saying for quite some time, availability of mid band spectrum is of critical importance to the successful deployment of 5G technologies especially for rural America. That is why we are very pleased that the Chairman has committed to conducting a public auction of 280MHz of mid band spectrum by the end of 2020. We look forward to seeing further details from the FCC as soon as they are available about the myriad of issues that need to be resolved in order for the auction and clearance of this spectrum to occur. This is a good day for rural America.”
