The FCC plans to avert a "looming crisis" among mobile broadband users by boosting available spectrum, helping spur the development of 4G networks and boosting competition, while maintaining some version of network neutrality, according to FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski. "As this audience knows, it takes years to reallocate spectrum and put it to use. And there are no easy pickings on the spectrum chart," per a copy of Genachowski's prepared remarks to an industry gathering in San Diego. "But we have no choice. We must identify spectrum that can best be reinvested in mobile broadband. That is something that we have to work on together, across industries, and in partnership with all stakeholders."
