FCC’s Auctions & Spectrum Access Division Chief, Margie Wiener, to speak on the Mobility Fund

Ms. Wiener will discuss the creation of a Mobility Fund as recommended in the National Broadband Plan at the RICA/RTG Fall Forum this November. RTG has emphasized that the Mobility Fund should not be used as a Fixed Wireless Fund and that the Mobility Fund (the size of which is anticipated to be about $300M) could jump start 3G or better service in certain rural areas cost effectively if used efficiently. RTG has also argued that $300M cannot be expected to result in greatly increased coverage to a high number of people or large geographic areas if it is used to build networks from scratch where there is currently no mobile coverage.
