Verizon supports CBA plan, calling it “clearly preferable” and “far more concrete and credible”

In a filing to the FCC, Verizon says “CBA targets a nationwide clearing of spectrum in half the time that ACA would – 3 years vs. 6 years” and adds “[u]ltimately, achieving a timely transition depends on accountability. And the CBA is a single entity that would be accountable for repacking the band and achieving the timeline. In contrast, no single entity will be accountable for the fiber conversions and other work called for by the ACA Coalition’s plan, and the FCC will have little if any ability to control this process.”
