Testimony for FCC en banc hearing at Carnegie Mellon University on broadband and the digital future

Thank you for inviting me to testify today. I will make the following points. Broadband deployment and growth in the United States is strong, and we compare favorably to the rest of the world, despite conventional wisdom. There is no crisis and no apparent market failure.

The service conditions are similar to those contained in a 2006 application by M2Z to obtain this spectrum for free.
