In this document, the Federal Communications Commission (“Commission”) increases the Nation's supply of spectrum for mobile broadband by adopting flexible use rules for up to 40 megahertz of spectrum in the 2 GHz band (2000-2020 MHz and 2180-2200 MHz), which we term the AWS-4 band. In so doing, we carry out a recommendation in the National Broadband Plan that the Commission enable the provision of stand-alone terrestrial services in the 2 GHz Mobile Satellite Service (MSS) spectrum band. Specifically, we remove unnecessary regulatory barriers to mobile broadband use of this spectrum, and adopt service, technical, and licensing rules that will encourage innovation and investment in mobile broadband and provide a stable regulatory regime in which broadband deployment can develop.
In this document, the Commission announces that the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has approved, for a period of three years, the information collection associated with the Commission's Wireless Backhaul Second Report and Order ( R&O ), Facilitating the Use of Microwave for Wireless Backhaul and Other Uses and Providing Additional Flexibility to Broadcast Auxiliary Service and Operational Fixed Microwave Licensees. This notice is consistent with the R&O, which stated that the Commission would publish a document in the Federal Register announcing the effective date of the Rural Microwave Flexibility Policy.
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) published a document in the Federal Register of September 5, 2012. In this document, the FCC on its own motion, pursuant to § 1.108 of the Commission's rules, corrects the channel center frequencies to align the wider 60 and 80 megahertz channels with the existing 30 and 40 megahertz channels in part 101 of our rules in the Wireless Backhaul 2nd R&O and issues this limited modification of the Wireless Backhaul 2nd R&O, in order to establish more efficient channel assignments, consistent with the Commission's intent to improve spectrum utilization in these bands. In addition, the FCC corrects an entry to the table in § 101.115(b)(2).
