Today, Assistant Secretary for Communications and Information and NTIA Administrator David J. Redl issued the following statement on the Federal Communications Commission's vote on actions to open access to high-band spectrum for 5G connectivity:

“NTIA applauds the Commission’s actions today to move forward with taking steps to increase access to high-band spectrum both for industry efforts such as 5G, and government users. This is a priority for NTIA in light of the critical role spectrum plays in our economy and in the execution of critical government missions. We look forward to continuing to work constructively with the FCC, the federal agencies, and industry as we seek to best enable innovative and diverse use of these bands.”
