On July 29 and October 7, the Commerce Committee held two full committee hearings on the future of wireless broadband. The hearings explored U.S. spectrum policy and how it should be improved to accommodate consumers' growing demands for wireless broadband. The series is designed to culminate with long-term broadband legislation.
The first wireless broadband hearing was entitled “Wireless Broadband and the Future of Spectrum Policy" and explored how federal spectrum policy may need to change to meet national challenges and what role Congress should play in establishing a successful spectrum strategy over the next few decades.
