FCC Schedules Spectrum Sharing Plan Vote; Tom Power Comments

FCCSealThe Federal Communications Commission will vote on a policy reform plan for federal agencies to share spectrum with commercial organizations for wireless broadband usage, FCW reported Monday.

Adam Mazmanian writes the FCC will consider the plan on April 23 to create the Citizens Broadband Radio Service, which will reside on 150 megahertz of spectrum in the 3550-to-3700 MHZ band.

Tom Power, White House deputy chief technology officer for telecommunications, said the government intends to reduce operational impact on agencies when they move spectrum, according to the report.

Power made the remarks at a New America Foundation event.

The administration intends to make spectrum available for commercial purchase, aggregation and license-trading as part of the White House’s wireless broadband infrastructure policy.
