The coalition urged regulators to “reject calls to preemptively interfere with new technologies like LTE-U and LAA that enhance utilization of unlicensed spectrum.” It is important for all participants in the unlicensed space, both existing and new entrants, to coexist and play well together,” the group said. Cable is worried about potential interference issues with unlicensed LTE.
