All comments and replies in this proceeding have now been filed and it is left to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to determine. While APCO continues to press its argument that Public Safety (PS) is making good use of this band and that utilization will grow if PS entities are permitted to create region-specific band plans. In its opinion, if PS must share the band, the FCC should permit only critical infrastructure industry (CII) use that supports essential public safety activities.


Dissent in this proceeding continues with large service providers and those who represent them (CTIA, AT&T, and T-Mobile) submitting ex parte filings arguing against census tract-sized priority access licenses (PALs) while smaller entities such as local wireless Internet service providers (WISPS) argue in favor of them. EWA anticipates an FCC decision soon. (GN 17-258)
