The following statement can be attributed to V. Noah Campbell, Co-founder and CEO of RS Access:

RS Access has worked closely with the Commission for the past four years to develop the technical record and evidence needed to reach this milestone. We commend the FCC’s drive to unlock over 1,000 MHz of spectrum between 12.2 - 13.25 for fixed wireless applications.

Chairwoman Rosenworcel’s announcement brings us one step closer to modernizing long-outdated rules that will vastly expand the 12 GHz bands’ potential. Her actions are perfectly timed to unlock the band as billions of federal dollars are set to change the broadband landscape through the BEAD program. We applaud the move to quadrupling the national availability of mid-band spectrum for fixed wireless—days after CTIA released a report on the urgent need to bring more spectrum to market.

We look forward to reviewing the FCC’s proposed rules in the coming days and are committed to our ongoing advocacy to unleash the 12 GHz band's full potential.
