Americans for Tax Reform has joined a letter supporting the FCC’s plan to repurpose C-Band spectrum for 5G deployment. 

Under Chairman Ajit Pai, the FCC has made it a priority to assure that the United States ends up being the global leader in 5G technology. This is not simply about having faster internet or more efficient GPS systems. Establishing a position of global leadership in 5G is crucial to maintaining national security, fostering economic growth, and encouraging innovation.

FCC Commissioner Michael O’Rielly has said that delaying the C-Band auction would be a serious risk to national security. ATR agrees with Commissioner O’Rielly and we strongly believe that the C-Band auction needs to happen as soon as possible. We appreciate the FCC’s leadership on this critical issue and will continue to monitor the situation.
