AT&T, Sirius XM Reach Compromise On 2.3 GHz Band
AT&T this week announced a new proposal to the FCC for rules governing the 2.3 GHz band, in which AT&T owns licenses that it wishes to use for 4G LTE service. The band - also knows as the WCS band - is close to the bands used by Sirius XM for satellite radio, creating the risk of interference. The new proposal is the product of discussions and compromise between AT&T and Sirius XM. If the FCC accepts and implements the new proposal, it will enable AT&T to deploy LTE efficiently in the 2.3 GHz band. The band has been tied up in regulatory disputes since it was auctioned off by the FCC in 1997.
This band is a myth
