FCC Proposes to Open 3.5GHz Spectrum to Small Cells

The Federal Communications Commission has issued a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) that will allow small cellular sites to provide wireless broadband service in the 3.5GHz band. The small cells will have to share the spectrum with other entities already using it, but organizations such as Qualcomm and the Telecommunications Industry Association applauded the proposal. The FCC still needs to take a number of steps before the spectrum is ready for use, but believes this chunk of airwaves will eventually benefit American consumers. Small cells are highly localized base stations that supplement larger macro cellular networks.
