News and online outlets are invited to reprint an Op-Ed from Jonathan Spalter, Chairman of Mobile Future.Org, who writes about how the release of the iPhone 5, along with other smartphones and tablets, will lead to more consumer demand for robust wireless connectivity and how currently, "American wireless consumers have the shortest end of the national spectrum stick."

The right steps need to be taken now to ensure American mobile innovation remains the envy of the world.

Jonathan Spalter, Chairman of Mobile Future.Org, which is a national coalition working in support of the mobile wireless industry, has written an Op-Ed that details the impact the new iPhone, and other smartphones and tablets, will continue to have on the nations wireless infrastructure.

The Op-ed is available for reprint and contains a number of interesting observations, including:

"Wireless innovation is at the center of our modern daily lives. With more than 330 million mobile devices in the nation, there are currently more wireless devices than people in the United States."

"Already with the runaway popularity of mobile Internet devices, North America’s wireless networks operate at 80 percent of capacity compared to the global average of 65 percent."

"the Federal Communications Commission has warned that consumer demand for wireless spectrum-the airwaves that connect our mobile devices-could outstrip existing capacity as early as next year."

"The challenge? Investment alone won’t avert growing congestion. Today, due to antiquated federal spectrum allocations, American wireless consumers have the shortest end of the national spectrum stick."

"Multiple solutions will be needed to address such a large and complex challenge."
