AT&T GSM 850 Blamed For Police Radio Outages In Oakland

AT&T has temporarily shut down GSM service in the 850 MHz band at 16 towers in Oakland, CA, after an FCC investigation found that they may have been a culprit in service problems with the city's new police radio system. AT&T's WCDMA and LTE networks are unaffected, as are GSM and WCDMA networks in the 1900 MHz band. The company has over 1,000 towers in the Bay Area. Most customers should therefore notice little impact. The FCC is also investigating whether some T-Mobile towers may be an issue. Although AT&T is licensed to use GSM technology in the 850 MHz band in that area, FCC rules require that public safety systems take priority.
