Adtec Digital is reaching out to industry partners and manufactures to help garner additional support for the Coalition for Free TV & Broadband, an organization formed to ensure the survival of free television and to offer solutions to the nation for better, cheaper wireless broadband utilizing the broadcast industry.
“We support what they are doing because it’s a reasonable thing to do, it could help create jobs, and it could allow the U.S. Treasury to collect more money than might otherwise be collected,” said Ron Johnson, president of Nashville based Adtec Digital. “We hope other manufactures will let their voices be heard by joining the Coalition and contacting their legislators. Simply stated, this is a better plan.”
The plan that Johnson refers to is devised by the television industry to maximize the efficient use of the television spectrum, to better serve the public by providing communities with more options for broadband service, to create thousands of new jobs and to create a continuous revenue stream to the U.S. Treasury. As proposed, the plan will raise $50-100 billion or more over the next 15 years to pay down the debt and not damage the local television industry. (read more)
