Licensee Action Key to FCC Decisions on Build-out Extension

There have been two FCC decisions regarding requests for construction extensions that illustrates the Commission’s view of legitimate licensee efforts to utilize spectrum assets. 
 
  • For the State of Wisconsin, the FCC allowed the State to retain its Part 22 licenses only in areas that had become operational and required the State to secure Canadian clearance for any above-Line-A facilities. (DA 18-1139)
  • For the New York Metropolitan Transportation Authority Police Department, the FCC provided additional time to complete construction of a 700 MHz system noting that the licensee had made progress in meeting its requirements, and that there was no evidence of spectrum warehousing. (DA 18-1164)
