FCC Adopts Rules for Citizens Broadband Radio Service


The Federal Communications Commission (FCC or Commission) has adopted rules for the Citizens Broadband Radio Service (3.5 GHz band). The Report and Order adopts spectrum sharing techniques to create a new three-tiered commercial radio service spanning 3550-3700 MHz. The use of advanced spectrum-sharing technology will allow wireless broadband systems to share spectrum with military radars and other incumbent systems, while protecting important federal missions. The Commission also adopted a Second Further Notice of Proposed Rulemaking that seeks comment on several related implementation issues.
