Broadband Radio Service
Educational Broadband Service
Relatively high-frequency radio bands originally set aside for "wireless cable" digital video services. BRS was intended for commercial services, while EBS was set aside for use by education and health care institutions.
This was generally not successful and the spectrum was repurposed for wireless broadband services such as Sprint's WiMax network.
This was also not successful, so the band was re-arranged into band 41, which Sprint now uses for LTE service.
