T-Mobile Arguments on PAL in 3.65 GHz Fall Short
EWA has filed comments in response to Petitions for Rulemaking seeking changes to rules governing the 3550-3700 MHz Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) filed by CTIA and T-Mobile USA, Inc. EWA opposes the T-Mobile Petition, which recommends that the Federal Communications Commission auction the entire band for use by Priority Access License (PAL) licensees, including the 3650-3700 MHz band, which is intensively used by government, business, industrial and critical infrastructure users, many of which are members of EWA.
EWA encourages licensees in the band to define by the August 7, 2017, deadline the grandfathered protection zones around base stations that were registered as of April 17, 2015, and placed into operation by April 17, 2016. To do so, visit the Universal Licensing System and select “3650 Grandfathered Wireless Protection Zone Filings” (login required). (GN 12-354; DA 17-340; DA 17-609).Category: EWA On Your Side
