WASHINGTON, Aug. 1, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- In response to U.S. President Barack Obama signing the Unlocking Consumer Choice and Wireless Competition Act (S. 517) into law, CTIA-The Wireless Association® Vice President of Government Affairs Jot Carpenter issued the following statement:
"Again, CTIA thanks Senator Leahy and Congressman Goodlatte for their work in crafting a piece of legislation that promotes consumer flexibility without imposing new regulations on America's wireless carriers. They are to be commended for finding an appropriate balance.
"Even though the vast majority of Americans enjoy upgrading to new devices once their contract terms are fulfilled, we recognize that some consumers may want to unlock their devices to move to another carrier. Like the voluntary commitment CTIA's carriers entered into last December, this bill enables that process. Users should keep in mind unlocked does not necessarily mean interoperable, as carrier platforms and spectrum holdings vary."
