• 3.5 GHz CBRS Band Rules Effective January 7
  • December 12, 2018
  • The FCC’s recently adopted 3.5 GHz band Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) Report and Order was published in the Federal Register last week, establishing an effective date for the rules on January 7, 2019 (Vol. XV, Issue 44). The modified rules include extending license terms to 10 years, adding renewability, and increasing the size of Priority Access License (PAL) areas from census tracts to counties. The General Authorized Access (GAA) tier of CBRS service is expected to become available later in the first quarter of 2019 and the PAL license auction could possibly be held by the end of 2019.
