Petition from Mexican Companies on 800 MHz Rebanding Dismissed
Monday, February 12, 2018 | Comments

The FCC dismissed a petition for declaratory ruling filed by Comunicaciones Digitales del Norte, Radio Sistemas de Tamaulipas, Troncatel and Union Agricola Regional del Norte de Tamaulipas, seeking an order relative to compensation allegedly owed them by AT&T Mexico and Sprint.

The commission said the petition is substantively identical to a previous petition filed by the Mexican companies, which the FCC dismissed in 2016 for lack of jurisdiction.

Because the latest petition raises no new issues within the FCC’s purview, the commission again dismissed the petitioners’ claims as outside its jurisdiction and referred the companies to the relevant regulatory authorities in Mexico for the relief they seek.

The companies operate 800 MHz trunked mobile systems in Mexico near the U.S.-Mexico border and want Sprint or AT&T to pay to reband their 800 MHz licenses in the “sharing zone” along the border.
