As a result, wireless providers are intensifying their search for cost effective wireless backhaul solutions. With nationwide coverage and control of a majority of active 39 GHz spectrum, we are strongly positioned to capitalize on significant growth in demand for spectrum. “During the quarter, we strengthened our nationwide coverage by increasing our 39 GHz spectrum position by more than 30% by obtaining 199 additional licenses; in total we now hold 814 FCC licenses in the 39 GHz band. In addition, we obtained 118 28 GHz licenses, bringing our total 28 GHz licenses to 133. Moving forward, we will look to further leverage our spectrum holdings to maximize future revenues. “In parallel, we continue to actively defend our intellectual property portfolio. In November, we filed a patent infringement action against Vonage. Going forward, we will continue to defend our assets against those that are utilizing our intellectual property without our consent,” concluded Mr. Jonas . About Straight Path Communications Inc.
