Broadband Access Coalition Supports “Win-Win-Win” Solution to Expanding Flexible Use of 3.7 GHz Spectrum

In comments filed with the Federal Communications Commission, the Broadband Access Coalition has devised and supports a “win-win-win” solution to expanding flexible use of the 3.7 to 4.2 GHz band spectrum. The Coalition’s approach to the 3.7 GHz band will result in its best and highest use: simultaneously retaining interference protection for satellite earth stations, making available flexible use spectrum for urban 5G deployments, and enabling fixed wireless providers to provide gigabit service to rural Americans. With a reasonable sharing and licensing regime, the 3.7 GHz band can be transformed from an underutilized band to a band that enables and incents robust broadband service across America.
