National Telecommunications and Information Administration’s (NTIA) development of a National Spectrum Strategy (NSS), March 30, 2023
“Spectrum is likely the single most important issue in telecommunications policy and has enormous fiscal and economic implications. Moreover, the merit of market-based allocation of spectrum via competitive auction at the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has been recognized with a recent economics Nobel prize and may be the most important policy innovation. This commentary was submitted to the National Spectrum Strategy process by the National Telecommunications Information Administration (NTIA) and makes the following points.
1. Market-Based Allocation Should Be The National Spectrum Strategy.
2. The US Military Can Still Be the Best in the World With Market-Based Spectrum Allocation.
3. The US Lack of Licensed, Exclusive Use Spectrum Is A National Security Risk.
4. Benefits of Market-Based Spectrum Allocation Will Work for Federal Spectrum.
