Charter Statement on FCC Chairman Pai’s proposal on 5.9 GHz

“Charter is thrilled that the FCC will introduce a proposal to put the highly-valuable 5.9 GHz spectrum to use after decades of under-utilization. We commend Chairman Pai for identifying  a reasonable compromise and Commissioners O’Rielly and Rosenworcel for their longstanding commitment to opening the band for unlicensed use. The Chairman’s proposal is an important step towards alleviating today’s unlicensed spectrum congestion and will set us on a path to ultra-fast, high capacity, multigigabit WiFi and other innovations. We look forward to working with the Chairman and other Commissioners as they move forward with this important proceeding.”
