Ten Year Plan and Timetable to Make Available 500 Megahertz of Spectrum for Wireless Broadband (President's Spectrum Plan Report)

October 29, 2010

To promote economic growth and unleash the potential of wireless broadband, President Obama unveiled an initiative to reform spectrum policy and improve America’s wireless infrastructure. In June 2010, the President signed a Memorandum calling for the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA), in collaboration with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), to make 500 megahertz of spectrum available for fixed and mobile wireless broadband in the next ten years. This will improve America’s economic competiveness, create jobs and help maintain America’s leadership role in technological innovation. This report outlines the plans and milestones to achieve the President’s 500 megahertz goal. The release of this roadmap together with NTIA’s Fast Track Evaluation marks the successful completion of a critical step in the process of freeing up 500 megahertz for use by wireless broadband.
