AT&T and Sirius XM have filed a proposal with the Federal Communications Commission calling for changes in the rules governing a band of wireless spectrum. The hope is that the band could be used for LTE services.
The filing focuses on the 2.3 GHz Wireless Communication Service band, which has long been a source of concern in the satellite radio industry. The FCC auctioned 128 licenses in 1997, raising concerns that the licensees might interfere with the neighboring Satellite Digital Audio Radio Service band.
More recently, AT&T has opposed FCC rules that attempt to resolve the conflict, arguing that it impaired the deployment of an efficient mobile broadband service in the WCS band.
In the proposal, AT&T has proposed a way to use the band without causing problems for satellite-radio company Sirius. The company has agreed to set aside a 5 MHz band on either side of Sirius' spectrum, in which no transmissions can travel.
“The effort to reach this accommodation was significant, and required concessions on both sides,” AT&T said in a blog post. “But this proposal, if accepted, will enable the adoption of technical rules satisfactory to both interests and should enable licensees in the 2.3 GHz WCS band to deploy the most efficient new mobile broadband technologies, including LTE, while not posing an unreasonable interference threat to satellite radio reception.”
