We can claim that the dilemma in the past was that spectrum was not available, but that is not the case anymore. Now the questions that must be asked are associated more with when it makes sense to build versus buy and what strategies are available. The PCAST report addresses these opportunities. This session focuses on the report and the venture opportunities it represents.
