What the industry is saying

"Southern Linc welcomes the Chairman's and Commissioners’ support of the 900 MHz Report and Order that will create a broadband opportunity for utilities and others providing critical services to the American public. Southern Linc has firsthand knowledge of the tremendous benefits LTE technology can bring to this sector of the economy; LTE can support grid modernization, the integration of renewable energy sources, enhanced cybersecurity, and other innovations. Expanding the private LTE ecosystem will lead to reduced equipment costs and a growing portfolio of technology choices for this essential segment of America's infrastructure."

— Michael Rosenthal, Director of Legal and External Affairs, Southern Linc

“EWA is pleased with the FCC’s adoption of the 900 MHz Report and Order today.  The long-awaited realignment of the 900 MHz band is a positive initiative as it supports the critical needs of business, industry, and critical infrastructure entities by permitting private broadband for secure and reliable internal communications.”   

— Robin Cohen, Senior Vice President, Strategic Initiatives

“Ameren could not be more pleased that the Chairman and the other Commissioners have paved the way for this company to deploy a smarter, stronger and more secure communications network with far greater bandwidth. We thank the FCC for all its hard work in crafting a decision that will support a future where broadband plays a key role in the control and management of our network, thereby allowing us to provide enhanced service to our customers."

— John Hughes, Director of Network Engineering for Ameren
