AT&T Presses for Multiple Licensees in 28 GHz Band

AT&T said it's a big supporter of multiple licensees in the 28 GHz band, which it called a seminal band for 5G deployment and one that will be critical to early 5G deployment.

With the FCC set to vote on new rules for higher-band spectrum on July 14, AT&T recently took the opportunity to explain its positioning on spectrum aggregation approaches in an ex parte filing with the commission.

The operator noted that the 28 GHz band is critically important to emerging 5G development efforts, and many experimental efforts are already underway in the band, where equipment development is the most mature.
