“The Senate made great strides last week in passing the largest infrastructure spending bill in U.S. history… The House should waste no time in passing this badly needed measure while expanding its scope to include support for all viable broadband technologies demanded today by comsumers… Fiber is an effective broadband solution in many areas of the country, But an often-overlooked technology that more and more consumers are demanding is fixed wireless—an efficient, competitive and popular high-speed alternative… A comprehensive fiber network connecting every home can take years to deploy. In these situations, fixed wireless technology fortunately can provide a high-quality, lower-cost solution that can be deployed more rapidly than fiber… Our experience as regulators has shown us that a one-size-fits-all policy is rarely the solution, especially for macro-level challenges such as promoting connectivity to all… We must pursue an all-of-the-above approach that will get everyone connected, no matter where they live.”
