  • The FCC adopted a Sixth Further NPRM to address expansion and investment concerns for the 50 MHz of spectrum in the 4.9 GHz band allocated exclusively to public safety communications. Currently, 90,000 licenses are available in the 4.9 GHz band, but only 3.5% are being utilized by public safety entities. The Commission seeks comment on alternatives to encourage use and investment in the band.
