Hudson Institute's Center for the Economics of the Internet welcomes you to a Discussion on…
The Future of the 1755-1780 MHz Band
Monday, September 16 12:00 – 1:30 PM
The federal government is the primary consumer of much of the available radio spectrum. The Obama Administration, through the Department of Commerce, is evaluating various bands of spectrum that could be transfered from federal to commercial use.
The 25 MHz of spectrum from 1755-1780 has recently been the focus of much attention. What might this band of spectrum be used for? How soon will it likely be available for commercial use? What steps need to happen first?
To examine these and related questions, Hudson Institute's Center for the Economics of the Internet is pleased to welcome two spectrum policy experts involved in the 1755-1780 MHz reallocation process: Carl Povelites and Steve Sharkey. Joining them is Hudson Visiting Fellow and former FCC Commissioner, Robert McDowell.
Carl Povelites, Assistant Vice President of Public Policy, Mobility for AT&T.
Steve Sharkey, Director, Chief Engineering and Technology Policy in T-Mobile's Government affairs office in Washington, DC.
Hudson Senior Fellow Harold Furchtgott-Roth will moderate the discussion.
