Without the speedy approval of additional spectrum for the wireless industry both new andinnovative applications, speeds, and wireless access will suffer. In addition, new job creationfor struggling and unemployed workers will not materialize. Sufficed to say, the approval ofthe proposed plan to reallocate needed spectrum from the broadcast industry to wirelessis essential in keeping this sector of the economy growing and creating new jobs. See(Recommendation 17-National Broadband Plan)
Broadcasters failed to innovate and use needed spectrum
The broadcasting industry failed to use its existing spectrum to innovate its way out of adeclining ad supported revenue market.As anyentrepreneurwill affirm, innovation,change,
and speed to market are an integral part of the continual and fast changing dynamics withina competitive marketplace. The FCC has outlined plans to compensate the broadcastersfor this spectrum, and it is now time to move forward. We can no longer wait and haggleover how spectrum should be used, or whether current owners have the right to sit on it. Ifanything, their dormant spectrum use should be considered abandoned.
The key phrase is (seizing the opportunity). Our government must support and rewardcompanies that seize the opportunity in creating new, innovative, and competitiveproducts; companies that create a new niche market, or offer products which no other hascontemplated; theGoogle’s,Cisco’s,Facebook’s,Twitter’s, andApple’sof the world, just to
mention a few. This is what our economy is all about. It is a mantra that creates new jobsand works to lower consumer prices. The FCC is on the right track in seeing a demand andmoving to fill its needs.

I'm interested in HOW you see this coming about, and how quickly giventhe initial pushback from broadcasters? They seem to be lawyering up andgirding for battle
