CEA Hails FCC’s Channel Sharing Report and Order
Arlington, VA – 04/27/2012 – The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) today approved a Report and Order that provides a regulatory framework for channel sharing among television licensees in connection with incentive spectrum auctions. 
Gary Shapiro, president and CEO of the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA)®, released the following statement regarding this regulatory action:
“The nation’s spectrum crisis is real and it is here. The FCC’s action today is a key step toward ensuring that additional spectrum for wireless broadband is available so that all Americans can enjoy the robust mobile broadband networks that our nation so desperately needs. 
“We applaud the FCC for its efforts to help our nation move forward toward more efficient use of valuable spectrum. We have only just begun the journey. I urge full cooperation from all stakeholders in the broadcast, wireless and manufacturing communities as we unleash the limitless potential of wireless broadband.”
