5G Americas comments in response to FCC’s Notice of Proposed Rulemaking for 3.1-3.55 GHz band

March 24, 2020

5G Americas provides comments in response to the Commission’s Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (“Notice”) concerning the use of the 3.1-3.55 band.

5G Americas thanks the Commission for moving forward on the critically important 3.3 – 3.55 GHz band, and for its recognition that the band, as well as the entire mid-band range up to 4.2 GHz, is being harmonized globally for 5G. Accordingly, 5G Americas not only supports the Commission’s proposal to relocate non-federal secondary allocations out of the band to prepare it for commercial wireless use, but advises that the Commission, when it does make the Lower 3 GHz band available for commercial use, does so under exclusive commercial licenses and with 5G-friendly rules. 5G Americas, like most industry participants in the proceeding, encourages the Commission to continue to review the rest of the Lower 3 GHz band that Congress directed it to study. This approach will best position the U.S. to lead the world in 5G.
