FCC Opens the Floor for Comments on Spectrum Allocation
After several large companies, including T-Mobile and Motorola, have voiced concerns about the amount of wireless spectrum that is available to commercial service providers, the FCC has decided to explore the matter further. It noted that it wants "additional comment on the fundamental question of whether current spectrum allocations, including but not limited to the prime bands below 3.7 GHz, are adequate to support near- and longer-term demands of wireless broadband." The FCC has put forth several questions regarding the issue, and is seeking comments by October 23.
FCC Weighing Mid-Band Spectrum for 5G
The FCC today issued a Notice of Inquiry concerning new spectrum bands it is eying for potential 5G deployments. Until today, the FCC has targeted 5G deployments in spectrum below the 3.7 GHz band and above the 24 GHz band.
FCC Weighing Changes to 2.5 GHz Band for 5G
The FCC today said it is considering new rules for the Educational Broadband Service (EBS) spectrum in the 2.5 GHz band. The FCC says much of this spectrum is unused across the U.S., particularly in rural areas.
FCC Makes More Moves to Secure 5G Spectrum

CTIA, CCA Want All Millimeter Spectrum Bands Auctioned Off Together
Two of the country's largest wireless lobbying organizations have asked the FCC to consider auctioning off the 37, 39, and 42 GHz bands at the same time it auctions off the 24 GHz band. The agency believes the 24 GHz band is prime real estate for forthcoming 5G service, and it has a loose schedule for that auction.
