CEA Response to NAB's Call to Examine Spectrum Hoarding

ARLINGTON, Va. --(Business Wire)--

In response to a letter sent to the U.S. House Energy and Commerce Committee and the U.S. Senate Commerce Committee by the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) regarding spectrum usage, Gary Shapiro, president and CEO of the Consumer Electronics Association (News - Alert) (CEA)®, released the following statement:

"NAB is seeking to confuse the U.S. Congress by comparing businesses that have paid large amounts for thin slices of spectrum with broadcasters who did not pay for broad swathes of the most desirabl spectrum and who are sitting on underused spectrum loaned to them by government. The fast growth in wireless video requires that we repurpose underused spectrum."
