NATE Commends FCC for Passage of Spectrum
Proceeding Paves the Way for 5G Networks in the United States
(Washington, D.C.) - The National Association of Tower Erectors (NATE) today commended the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) for unanimously approving its Spectrum Frontiers Proceeding. The Spectrum Frontiers Proceeding makes high-frequency spectrum available in bands above 24GHZ available for 5G networks. With this historic vote, the United States becomes the first country to identify and open up spectrum specifically for 5G networks.
“NATE applauds FCC Chairman Wheeler and Commissioners Clyburn, O’Rielly, Pai and Rosenworcel for their proactive leadership in helping pave the way to make 5G networks a reality in the United States,” stated Executive Director Todd Schlekeway.
“NATE member companies have developed and maintained every generation of communications networks and will be on the front lines once again in order to help make 5G networks a reality in the future,” added Schlekeway.
