Genachowski, in a speech at the Consumer Electronics Show here Friday, said mobile broadband was critical to fueling the country's economic growth and keeping it globally competitive.
"The consumer electronics industry is going wireless... We need to free up more spectrum," Genachowski said. "Unleashing mobile spectrum is at the top of the FCC's 2011 agenda."
He added, "We could be in a position, if Congress acts, to auction this spectrum in the next year or two and get that on the market... Every day we have a delay we'll have a cost to the U.S. in terms of our global competitiveness."
He called wireless spectrum "the oxygen that sustains our mobile devices," adding, "This invisible infrastructure is the backbone of a growing percentage of our economy and our lives."

If they take our broadcast spectrum, we will boycott the internet and start buying books. That's what the government and corporate businesses wants us to do.
Buy and read a real book, not one of those e-books that give you brain tumors or brain cancer.
The internet is killing our bookstores. E-books are hurting our publishers.
