Thankfully, an agreement has been reached on the payroll tax cut legislation that provides for open and fair spectrum auctions allowing anyone to bid. App developers have long advocated for increased spectrum as wireless networks are approaching saturation. Our apps need connectivity to run and our customers want to access them everywhere. Improved unlicensed spectrum is important, yet we also need more licensed spectrum to provide users the ubiquitous access they demand. We are happy that the competing factions in Congress finally came to an agreement, but it will only be judged a success by app developers if it results in more licensed and unlicensed spectrum.
