Previous editions of WCAI's 4G Global Update are available on the Global Development Committee website:

Spectrum bands such as 2.5-2.6, 2.3 and 3.4-3.6 GHz increasingly serve as global bands for broadband wireless services.  Globally harmonized spectrum, flexible use, consistent regulatory treatment and interoperability are required for such bands to achieve this potential.  To advance this goal, the Wireless Communications Association International (WCAI) created the Global Development Committee (GDC) for service providers.  This newsletter advances GDC's work by keeping opinion leaders abreast of worldwide developments.  For questions, submission of news items or to become a GDC member company, please contact WCAI Vice President, Communications & Strategy and 4G Global Update Editor Susan Polyakova.
