FCC boosts Sprint LTE plans with 800MHz decision

The Federal Communications Commission FCC has voted to remove technical restrictions on the 800MHz frequency band, allowing mobile operators to utilise the spectrum for 3G and Long Term Evolution LTE services. According to Fierce Wireless, a five-member board made the decision on Thursday, voting unanimously in favour of the plans, which will affect all holders of 800MHz Specialised Mobile Radio SMR licences. The decision alters the FCC’s rules to allow geographically-based SMR licensees to operate across contiguous channels, without a rigid channel spacing requirement or bandwidth limitation. Until now, the restrictions have limited operations using the 800MHz band to 2G services.
