FCC considers order to make spectrum above 95 GHz available for unlicensed use


More spectrum appears to be coming down the pike thanks to an order FCC Chairman Ajit Pai is circulating that would make 21.2 gigahertz of spectrum above 95 GHz available for unlicensed use across four frequency bands. … Some wireless industry professionals haven’t been terribly excited about the spectrum in these superhigh bands; industry groups like CTIA have been lobbying for more midband licensed spectrum in particular for 5G. But researchers are studying the higher bands, with institutions like the New York University Wireless research center and NYU Tandon School of Engineering’s Electrical and Computer Engineering Department conducting seminars on terahertz spectrum—generally the stuff that's above 100 GHz but going all the way up to 540 GHz or so.
