  • Last week, the Commission opened Docket No. 17-183, entitled “Expanding Flexible Use in Mid-Band Spectrum Between 3.7 and 24 GHz,” and released a draft Notice of Inquiry that focuses on how this mid-band spectrum can be used for wireless broadband. The NOI specifically asks about the 3.7-4.2 GHz; 5.925-6.425 GHz; and 6.425-7.125 GHz bands. Earlier in the week, Commissioner O’Rielly published a blog post supporting the exploration of these bands and encouraging an inquiry into how these bands can be used more efficiently.
