FCC Actions Today on Leasing and Wi-Fi

Lemmy Caution writes “Today, as expected, the FCC adopted a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking proposing to allocate an additional 255 MHz of spectrum for 802.11a (and other similar) devices in the 5 GHz band. The FCC also adopted the long awaited spectrum leasing item, which will, when it becomes effective, permit certain covered carriers (mobile and fixed) to engage in a variety of leasing practices. The decision doesn’t permit unconstrained leasing, but does provide expedited procedures for getting leases approved.” We mentioned this second part last night.
