With policymakers acknowledging that the U. S. faces a real "spectrum crunch," especially as wireless usage grows exponentially, nationally known experts with divergent perspectives will debate a range of hot-topic key policy issues. These issues include the FCC's approach to spectrum allocation and assignments; the design of newly-authorized "incentive" spectrum auctions to free up underutilized spectrum; the role, if any, of spectrum caps in transaction reviews or otherwise; and the repurposing of government spectrum for private sector use. Our experts will answer questions from callers after their debate.
