5G Americas applauds the FCC’s decision to open 3.45-3.55GHz band for 5G

On September 30, 2020, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) considered a Report and Order that would remove the existing non-federal allocations from the 3.3-3.55 GHz band as an important step toward making 100 megahertz of spectrum in the 3.45-3.55 GHz band available for commercial use, including 5G, throughout the contiguous United States. In addition, the FCC also considered a Further Notice of Proposed Rulemaking that would propose to add a co-primary, non-federal fixed and mobile (except aeronautical mobile) allocation to the 3.45-3.55 GHz band as well as service, technical, and competitive bidding rules for flexible-use licenses in the band.

In regards to the actions at the FCC, 5G Americas issues the following statement:

5G Americas applauds the FCC’s decision to open this portion of the globally-harmonized band for 5G, which will accelerate innovation of apps and services for more Americans. 5G Americas looks forward to working with the FCC on technical rules for commercial access to this globally harmonized 5G band, and developing protocols for coordinating commercial and federal use to maximize the benefit for U.S. consumers.
