“Our nation’s wireless needs are too often governed by 1970s regulations that hinder economic progress and innovation,” Edward Zander, chairman and chief executive officer (CEO) of Motorola Inc. and chairman of the council, said in a statement. “We need to re-think our approach to radio spectrum to bring our national policy into the wireless era and ensure that spectrum is available for entrepreneurs, innovators and first responders.”
Radio spectrum is used by a variety of tech devices, including Wi-Fi networks, mobile phones, FM radio and two-way radios. The report, titled “Freeing Our Unused Spectrum,” said “artificial constraints imposed by public policy” are creating unneeded spectrum scarcity.
