October 24, 2017 3.5GHz , FCC , Rural Access , Spectrum , Spectrum Reform

Today, the Federal Communications Commission voted to approve a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) that will undo years of the FCC’s work to improve wireless deployments in rural areas, close the digital divide, and promote spectrum use by a wide range of users with diverse and innovative business models in the 150 megahertz between 3550-3700 MHz (the 3.5 GHz Band or Band).

Congress is Answering the Urgent Call for Spectrum Reform, and Members Should Combine Efforts

November 17, 2015 Spectrum Reform , Specturm Sharing , Unlicensed Spectrum

Unlicensed spectrum bands are the innovation bands.
