Second Annual Report on the Status of Spectrum Repurposing

January 07, 2021

The United States continues to build on its 5G leadership and is critically focused on repurposing radiofrequency spectrum – especially through investment in America’s mid-band spectrum. Our country leads the world in availability of high- and low-band spectrum for commercial wireless services. Now, as this Report highlights, the United States is making tremendous strides in repurposing important mid-band spectrum. The 2018 Presidential Memorandum “Developing a Sustainable Spectrum Strategy for America’s Future” required the Secretary of Commerce to report annually on efforts to repurpose spectrum – either on an exclusive or shared basis – to support commercial wireless services. This is the second such report, and it highlights spectrum repurposing activities through August 30, 2020 that are meeting statutory requirements and advancing President Trump’s policy objectives.
