The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Chairman Ajit Pai has applauded plans to auction off 100 megahertz (MHz) of mid-band spectrum in the country that will boost the 5G adoption in the US which is lagging behind China and South Korea.

 

The White House and Department of Defense said that the 3.45-3.55 GHz band (which is the mid-band spectrum) will be made available for next-generation, commercial wireless services.

 

"I commend the President and Department of Defense for today's announcement that the 3.45-3.55 GHz band will be made available for commercial 5G deployment. This is a key milestone in securing United States leadership in 5G," Pai said in a statement on Monday.
