FCC Dismisses Two Petitions for Reconsideration of the 3.5 GHz 2018 Order as Untimely


The FCC’s Wireless Telecommunications Bureau (Bureau) has dismissed two petitions for reconsideration filed by CallComm and Mile One Broadband Consortium (Mile One) of the 2018 Report and Order (Order) revising the rules for priority access licensees in the 3.5 GHz band. CallComm argued that the protections adopted for incumbent users in the 3.5 GHz Band should have been extended to non-federal Part 90 Land Mobile Radiolocation licensees in the band. The Bureau asserts that the rules addressing incumbent users in the 3.5 GHz Band were adopted in an earlier proceeding and were not revisited in the 2018 Order or the underlying notice. Finding CallComm’s petition untimely filed and raising matters outside the scope of the Order on review, the Bureau dismisses the petition. Mile One requests that the FCC broaden the consortium exception to competitive bidding established in the 2018 Order. The Bureau, asserting that Mile One filed its petition three weeks late, dismisses the petition as untimely filed. By the Bureau’s subject action, it disposes of all pleadings pending in the matter.
