EWA Files Comments on ECIP

In Comments filed October 19, EWA argued in support of rule changes that would make spectrum more accessible to private enterprise licensees seeking to acquire geographic licenses to support private internal operations. In its Comments on the Second Further Notice of Proposed Rulemaking on the Enhanced Competition Incentive Program (ECIP), EWA sought to address current “build-out obligations on geographic licenses that require coverage of defined percentages of population or geography,” which intend to ensure that commercial wireless licensees intensively use of their spectrum. EWA commented that private internal licensees require different coverage standards “that would enable them to deploy more advanced technologies, including broadband technology, in support of their internal operating needs.”
