Charter Statement on Introduction of the C-BAND ACT

Charter appreciates Representatives Mike Doyle, Bill Johnson, Doris Matsui, and Greg Gianforte for recognizing that a fair and transparent auction run by the FCC is the most efficient and effective means of making valuable C-band spectrum available for the widespread deployment of 5G and delivering the benefits of the next generation of broadband connectivity to communities in urban and rural America alike. Their bipartisan C-BAND ACT rightly protects American taxpayers, the true owners of our country’s spectrum assets, and seizes the opportunity to use this valuable national resource to win the race to 5G and help close the digital divide.
