FCC advances proposal that would create broadband segment in 900 MHz band

The U.S. Federal Communications Commission voted to move forward on a notice of proposed rulemaking March 13 that would make a segment of the 900 MHz band available for wireless broadband, which would open up additional low-band spectrum for wireless.

Currently, the 900 MHz band is used for narrowband private land mobile radio communications. The proposal seeks to allow for additional uses of the band by wireless broadband while preserving two segments for continued narrowband use.

The proposal also seeks comment on a series of possible transition mechanisms to reconfigure the band to allow for the creation of the broadband segment.

In a Feb. 21 blog post previewing the item, FCC Chairman Ajit Pai said the transition proposals are being put forth to ensure that the commission has a range of tools available for repurposing the spectrum going forward.
