Break’s over. It’s time to head back to the classroom to learn more about spectrum.
In our last episode, we learned the importance of spectrum, who owns it (we all do), why spectrum is such a complicated issue (there are many kinds), how you get those licenses (auctions), and that spectrum will unite the country (OK, maybe not).
Turns out, there’s a lot of education that needs to happen with regard to spectrum and expanding the ecosystem for 5G. In other words, it’s not just you that’s being schooled. Legislators may not know a lot about 5G, but they know they want it — and they want their region to have it first. Part of our job is to educate these folks about the technology, how we’re doing with 5G in the U.S., and if we’re making good progress.
So what’s our report card look like?
Find out in part two of our discussion on spectrum where we’ll also tackle the importance of small cells and laying the foundation for 5G, why November’s spectrum auctions matter, and how we’re using unlicensed spectrum to push the 5G envelope.
