ACA Connects Statement on the Release of the National Spectrum Strategy

PITTSBURGH, November 13, 2023 – The following statement regarding today’s release of the National Spectrum Strategy may be attributed to ACA Connects President and CEO Grant Spellmeyer:

“A healthy spectrum pipeline is critical to the future of connectivity in the United States. Meeting the ever-growing demands for wireless spectrum will require us to use every tool in the toolbox — including exclusive use, unlicensed use, and sharing. It also will require government users to use spectrum efficiently and make spectrum available for commercial use.  ACA Connects thanks the White House and NTIA for moving the conversation forward with their release of the National Spectrum Strategy.  We look forward to working with the Administration, Congress, and all stakeholders to provide the spectrum the U.S. needs to drive our economy and society.”
