The Potential Market Value and Consumer Surplus Value of The Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) at 3550-3700 MHz in the United States

We recently partnered with former FCC commissioner Harold Furchtgott-Roth to conduct the first-ever economic analysis of the value of CBRS spectrum. Harold, who’s now the president of Furchtgott-Roth Economic Enterprises, also held the title of chief economist for the U.S. House Committee on Commerce during the Clinton administration.

The full report is packed with a lot of detail and interesting stats and a thorough analysis of the economic value of CBRS. However, you don’t have to be an economist to understand the resounding message that came out of this research – there is massive value tied to the effective use and sharing of spectrum in the 3.5 band.
