CBRS Auction, TV White Spaces, Public-Safety Information Sharing on FCC’s February Agenda
Friday, February 07, 2020 | Comments

The FCC will consider a public notice that would establish application and bidding procedures for the auction of priority access licenses (PALs) in the Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) in the 3.65 GHz band at its Feb. 28 open meeting.

The auction is scheduled to begin June 25. The FCC has proposed offering seven PALs in each county-based license area for a total of 22,631 PALs nationwide. Each PAL will consist of 10-megahertz unpaired channels assigned by automated frequency coordinators known as spectrum access systems (SAS).

The FCC will also consider changes to the TV white spaces device rules in the TV bands to provide improved broadband coverage that would benefit American consumers in rural and underserved areas.

Also on the agenda is a second further notice of proposed rulemaking that would provide state and federal agencies with read-only access to communications outage data for public-safety purposes while also preserving the confidentiality of that data.
