FCC Grants Flint Hills Waiver at 900 MHz

On September 12, the FCC issued an Order stating that it has granted an application filed by Flint Hills Resources Corpus Christi, LLC for 900 MHz band Business/Industrial/Land Transportation channels and an associated request for waiver of the current application freeze in that band. The purpose of the freeze is to preserve the current landscape of authorized operations in the 900 MHz band pending FCC action on a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) that would make a segment of the 900 MHz band available for broadband. The waiver grant permits Flint Hill to deploy a new 900 MHz system by the end of 2019 while at the same time transitioning to new 900 MHz channels in one of the narrowband segments proposed within the recent FCC Notice of Proposed Rulemaking. Flint Hill’s channels that reside within the broadband segment of the band will be returned to the FCC.
