Dear
ChairmanGenachowski:
We
enthusiasticallysupport
your
policiesthat
aim
to
free-up
the
spectrumnecessary
so
all
networkproviders
can
constructnext-generationbroadband
networks.
We
believe
that
the
combined
spectrum
positions
and
physical
infrastructure
of
AT&T
and
T-Mobile
willdeploya4GLTE
broadband
service,
that
reaches
97%
of
theUnited
States,in
a
far
faster
timeframethan
either
firm
could
achieve
on
its
own.
In
our
estimation,
one
of
the
greatest
opportunities
for
future
economic
growthinvolves
wireless
broadband
and
mobile
devices.
The
rise
of
smartphones
likethe
iPhoneand
Android
deviceshas
created
a
powerfulnewcomputingplatform
on
which
manystart-ups
are
being
built.
However,this
growth
opportunity
faces
a
challenge
with
the
looming
prospect
of
“spectrum
exhaust”.
If
overcrowdednetworks
are
unable
to
providethe
bandwidth
required,
thenmillions-upon-millions
of
Americanswill
not
enjoy
the
benefits
of
the
excitingnew
ideas,
devices
and
applicationsthat
are
beingdeveloped
by
today’s
start-ups
andwill
be
pursued
by
tomorrow’sinnovators.
We
hope
that
you
receive
our
collectivevoice
on
this
importantmatter
in
proportion
to
the
audience
we
represent.
We’reinthe
business
of
financing
and
helpingtechnology
start-ups
createnew
jobs,
revivestruggling
communities
and
generate
a
substantialtax
base.
