Entner: Political expedience on 700 MHz trumps physics, revenue and consumer interests – FierceWireless

At its last meeting, the FCC announced it was commencing a new rulemaking to resolve interference issues in the 700 MHz Block and assess how such interference issues impede interoperability among devices and networks using 700 MHz. Before we delve into a conversation about the FCC’s proposals, it is helpful to remind ourselves of the history of the issue.

The FCC knew about the issues it now wants to study in this newest NPRM (Notice of Proposed Rule Making) before the spectrum was auctioned in 2008. Further, the interference issues were taken into account by the FCC at that time, and informed the rules under which the spectrum was auctioned and purchased.
