STATEMENT OF ASSISTANT SECRETARY NANCY J. VICTORY ON ANALOG CELLULAR DECISION BY FEDERAL COMMUNICATIONS COMMISSION
"The Administration supports the Commission's decision to eliminate the outdated analog cellular requirement over five years," Assistant Secretary of Commerce Nancy Victory said today. "As a result of this action, spectrum will be managed more efficiently and carriers will have more flexibility to create innovative new services for consumers. I also commend the Commission for helping to meet the needs of the hearing assisted community and the telematics industry by establishing a reasonable transition period and committing to monitor the success of that transition."
