In mid-November, Public Knowledge, CTIA- The Wireless
Association, and Silicon Flatirons Center hosted a conference on spectrum policy,
titled Looking Back to Look Forward: The Next Ten Years of Spectrum Policy. The
room was packed with upwards of 200 people there to debate the future of spectrum.
The year 2012 marks a pivotal time in the conversation on spectrum,
as the midway point in the Obama Administration that began the FCC’s National
Broadband Plan, the 10-year anniversary of the FCC Spectrum Policy Task Force
Report, and a hundred years since the 1912 Radio Act. The conference heard from
FCC Commissioners Jessica Rosenworcel and Robert McDowell, as well as many
others on the history, reform, and what lies ahead for spectrum policy.
