The FCC today issued a decision that clears Qualcomm to launch its MediaFLO mobile TV network in a much larger number of markets. Qualcomm is building the network in the 700 MHz band with spectrum it owns on UHF TV channel 55. The FCC's decision defines the amount of interference Qualcomm's broadcasts can cause to channels 54-56 over the next two and a half years until analog TV spectrum must be vacated in February 2009. The FCC ruled the network can launch in areas where broadcasters operate on those channels with 0.5% interference, increasing to 1.5% by 2009. This will allow Qualcomm to launch in more areas sooner since they won't need to wait for analog TV shutdown in most cases.
