One of the biggest proponents for unleashing millimeter wave spectrum in the U.S. said this week that he's encouraged by what the FCC is doing – in fact, it's exceeding even his expectations.
Ted Rappaport, IEEE fellow and founding director of NYU Wireless, along with a group of NYU Wireless students, authored the paper "Millimeter Wave Mobile Communications for 5G Cellular: It Will Work!" (PDF). The paper was published in May 2013, after which many vendors and operators started launching more millimeter wave experiments.
