On March 17, 2021, the Federal Communications Commission issued a Second Report and Order that would establish rules to create a new 3.45 GHz Service operating between 3.45-3.55 GHz, making 100 megahertz of mid-band spectrum available for flexible use throughout the contiguous United States. (WT Docket No. 19-348). This order stems from an earlier Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) issued on December 16, 2019 regarding facilitating shared use of the 3.1 – 3.55 GHz band. That NPRM proposed the removal of existing non-federal secondary radiolocation and amateur allocations in the 3.3-3.55 GHz band and the relocation of incumbent non-federal operations out of the band.
