Replying to: How is the spectrum split up? by wb
There are two main "bands" in the U.S. - cellular and PCS. Cellular is also known as 800 or 850. Its frequencies are near 850 MHz. PCS is near 1900 MHz.
Cellular is divided into two parts, and for any given area there is one license for each part.
PCS is divided into six parts, although they are not equal parts - some are larger than others. But it's the same basic idea - for any given area there are six PCS licenses.
Nextel uses SMR spectrum, which is in the 800/900 MHz vicinity, but separate specific ranges from Cellular.
