The Federal Communications Commission today said that it will move forward with a notice of proposed rulemaking about interoperability in the 700MHz bands. It will explore "the potential for harmful interference to Lower 700MHz B and C Block operations if the Lower 700MHz Band were interoperable and whether, if such interference exists, it can be reasonably mitigated." The course of action follows a request made by T-Mobile USA and others who believe that interoperable 700MHz spectrum will lead to better roaming deals and services for consumers. The FCC is also going to investigate rules for flexible terrestrial use of spectrum currently assigned to the Mobile Satellite Service (MSS) in the 2GHz band. Exploring these options may help increase the availability of wireless services to Americans.
