AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon, DoD to Explore Spectrum Sharing
Replying to: Cross-Carrier Phones? by GettingSleepy
Re: Cross-Carrier Phones?
This is specifically to see whether or not *any* wireless carrier can operate a network on spectrum that's already being used by the government (1755-1850MHz). This particular plan is a test of these specific airwaves only, and just to make a technological point.
If these tests are successful, the FCC will then see what carrier might be able to use those airwaves.
This is one of many alternatives being explored by the FCC to see what it can do to free up more spectrum for use by consumers.
