The FCC has launched a Spectrum Task Force to advance the FCC's spectrum agenda and promote collaboration across the agency. JULIUS KNAPP, Chief of the Office of Engineering Technology, and RUTH MILKMAN, Chief of the Wireless Telecommunications Bureau, will co-chair the task force.
"To lead the world in mobile, the FCC must ensure that our nation's spectrum is being put to its highest and best use," said FCC Chairman JULIUS GENACHOWSKI. "Maximizing this essential 21st century resource will create jobs, drive economic growth, and encourage innovation and investment. The FCC's National Broadband Plan lays out a comprehensive roadmap for promoting greater spectrum efficiency and flexibility, and ensuring sufficient spectrum for broadband. The Spectrum Task Force will keep us on this charted course."
