If the FCC votes to adopt the proposed Spectrum Frontiers rulemaking on July 14, it will be making available more spectrum for flexible use wireless broadband than ever before: A total of 10.85 GHz, giving wireless operators and others a whole lot more spectrum to play with.
The FCC released a fact sheet on Thursday related to its Spectrum Frontiers proposal that identifies vast amounts of high-band spectrum for 5G wireless broadband. The proceeding has not gone without a hitch – the satellite and mobile industries have been bickering over spectrum sharing, particularly in the 28 GHz band.
