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.
5G Americas, the voice for 5G and LTE in the Americas, submits these reply comments
in the Commission’s Further Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (“Further Notice”) in the above referenced
proceeding on facilitating shared use of the 3.1 – 3.55 GHz band.
