EWA and pdvWireless Offer Refinements to 900 MHz PEBB Proposal

On May 2, EWA and pdvWireless filed Further Comments with the FCC that recommend revisions to the original proposal for Private Enterprise Broadband (PEBB) in the 900 MHz band. The reallocation of the 900 MHz band to allow for a broadband opportunity available exclusively to Critical Information Infrastructure (CII) and Business/Industrial Land Transportation (B/ILT) users would enable secure and reliable broadband for critical infrastructure and business enterprise. The revisions proposed increase protections against the possibility of interference, protecting incumbents, and ensure that PEBB service areas mirror more closely those of CII and B/ILT entities. The revisions are the result of conversations with incumbents in the band since the release of the original proposal in 2014. Since the filing of these Further Comments, Sensus, a primary opponent to the PEBB proposal, withdrew its objections because of the shift in the proposed location of the PEBB allocation.
