FCC Allocates 3G Spectrum
Nov 7, 2002, 3:22 PM by (staff)
The FCC today officially allocated 90 MHz of new spectrum for fixed and mobile wireless services. The spectrum is divided into two contiguous 45 MHz bands: 1710-1755 and 2110-2155 MHz. The spectrum was orginally identified by the Commerce Deprtment in July. FCC officials said the spectrum probably will come to auction by 2004. Numerous private and government users, including the some users within the Department of Defense, must be relocated to make the spectrum available. The Commission is currently seeking comment on how to subdivide and pair the spectrum, how to divide licenses geographically, and technical issues such as setting power limits, preventing interference, and coordinating with Canada and Mexico.
