April 16, 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 urges the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) to accelerate its process for opening up the 3100-3550 MHz mid-band spectrum for commercial wireless use, citing an urgent need for increased spectrum resources due to the COVID-19 pandemic and to maintain US leadership in 5G.
In its letter, 5G Americas requests NTIA to conclude its evaluation of the entire Lower 3 GHz Band in the immediate term so that the commercial wireless cellular industry can begin to analyze the study.
