U.S., Mexico Sign Border Agreement (11/17)
Friday, November 17, 2006 | Comments
Senior telecommunications officials of the United States and Mexico signed a spectrum-sharing agreement to support first responders and other state and local public-safety organizations. The agreement also supports the operations of commercial entities expected to deploy advanced wireless services along the border. For U.S. public-safety licensees, the agreement provides access to 12 megahertz of primary spectrum in the border area. For commercial services, the agreement provides certainty regarding network operations for new broadband wireless service providers once broadcasters complete their conversion from analog to digital television (DTV) in spectrum now used for TV channels 52 to 69. The agreement takes the form of a protocol under a 1994 U.S.-Mexico framework agreement covering terrestrial non-broadcasting radio communication services.
