700 MHz Plan Envisions One Licensee(2)

The commission wants to know what Americans think about a centralized national approach that it says would maximize the access of public safety organizations to interoperable broadband spectrum in the 700 MHz band.

The commission wants to know what Americans think about a centralized national approach that it says would maximize the access of public safety organizations to interoperable broadband spectrum in the 700 MHz band.

That’s the proposal in a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, which also seeks to promote deployment of “advanced broadband applications, related radio technologies and modern, IP-based system architecture.”

The item proposes that the FCC allocate 12 megahertz of the 700 MHz public safety spectrum from wideband to broadband use, assign it nationwide to a single national public safety broadband licensee and permit that entity also to operate on a secondary basis on the narrowband public safety spectrum in the 700 MHz band.
