Keller and Heckman Attorneys on the National Broadband Plan:
"It is an open question whether the proposal to secure spectrum for wireless broadband through so called "incentive auctions" of portions or all of the assigned spectrum in licensed television broadcast stations will ever pass the ‘laugh test.'" - Doug Jarrett, Partner, Keller and Heckman LLP
"The Commission has established several challenging goals for itself, including its recommendation to allocate an additional 300 MHz of spectrum for mobile use within 5 years. As the FCC staff now turns to implementation, private users will need to stay involved in the process to ensure that their interests don't get left out."- Greg Kunkle, Associate, Keller and Heckman LLP
"As Commissioner McDowell noted, the Plan is the first step in a long process. It represents a tremendous amount of hard work but contains no rules and does not carry with it the force and effect of law. Look for the FCC to initiate several rulemaking proceedings in the coming months to begin gradually implementing the Plan." - Wes Wright, Associate, Keller and Heckman LLP
