"CTIA is confident that the broadband data to be collected under today's Report and Order will confirm what consumers already know: wireless users in the U.S. benefit from having access to the fastest, most ubiquitous, and most advanced wireless networks and devices, all made possible through the virtuous cycle of wireless investment and innovation. This investment and innovation, in turn, drives greater mobile adoption and mobile broadband deployment.

"CTIA also welcomes today's update on the status of the Broadcast Incentive Auction. As CTIA has previously stressed, the incentive auction is critical to unleashing necessary additional spectrum for mobile broadband. We commend Acting Chairwoman Clyburn and her colleagues for their continued efforts to advance this important proceeding and their continued commitment to conducting this critical auction in 2014."
