Wireless advocacy group Mobile Future's study "Private-Sector Investment and Employment Impacts of Reassigning Spectrum to Mobile Broadband in the United States" predicts boosts to the nation's economy if additional spectrum is allocated for wireless networks.

Reassigning an additional 300 MHz of spectrum to mobile broadband over five years, the study says, will spur $75 billion in new capital spending, creating more than 300,000 jobs and $230 billion in additional GDP. The release of an additional 200 MHz of new spectrum after five years will create an additional 200,000 jobs and increase GDP by an additional $155 billion, according to the study.
