Statement by Assistant Secretary Michael D. Gallagher on the FCC's Adoption of Advanced Wireless Services Rules

"The FCC deserves credit for its prompt responsiveness to the timetable that will lead to spectrum auctions as early as June, 2006.  The transfer of substantial quantities of extremely valuable spectrum from federal government to commercial use, and the timely relocation of incumbents, will speed the availability of advanced wireless services and commercial deployment of innovative technologies."
