- T-Band spectrum has been used extensively by private land mobile radio entities since the early 1970s, and in many of the cities affected by the Act, no comparable spectrum exists to which these operations could be relocated.
- It is unlikely that providing T-Band B/ILT incumbents priority access to 800 MHz interstitial channels will provide meaningful relief since 800 MHz interstitial channels are least likely to be available for use in the major urban areas where T-Band systems are located.
- A more robust ecosystem of equipment and applications exist in the 800 MHz band that could prove attractive to certain 900 MHz incumbents as they consider how best to position their operations for future growth and system technology requirements.
