Ensuring that spectrum can move to its highest-value use is key to wireless innovation and all the industries that rely on it. The recently completed incentive auction represents one such way to “refarm” spectrum. License overlays and stronger property rights are others. Some argue that sharing models, like that in the 3.5 GHz band, or unlicensed spectrum will allow for the easiest refarming. The off-the-record working group, “Refarming Spectrum: What Have We Learned?” at this year’s TPI Aspen Forum, will focus on these aspects of spectrum policy.
Speakers at the working group, moderated by Stanford University’s Gregory Rosston, are:
Cort Bush (invited), United States Senate
Gary Epstein, Former Chair, FCC Incentive Auction Task Force
Kathleen Ham, T-Mobile
Tom Hazlett, Clemson University
Evan Kwerel, Federal Communications Commission
Joan Marsh, AT&T
Sarah Oh, Technology Policy Institute
Peter Pitsch, Intel Corporation
The Forum is scheduled for August 20-22 at the St. Regis Aspen Resort in Aspen, Colorado. The full agenda and registration information can be found on the Aspen Forum website.
