TV White Spaces Proceeding

RTG along with Fibertower, Sprint and Comptel (Coalition) submitted an ex parte filing with the FCC in the TV White Spaces proceeding seeking to correct and address erroneous claims and mischaracterizations made by the Wireless Internet Service Providers Association (WISPA) regarding technical elements of the Coalition’s proposal. In sum, the Coalition asks the FCC to reject WISPA’s attempts to limit broadband deployment options in unserved and underserved rural areas to its own narrow unlicensed or “licensed lite” approach. Instead, the Coalition asks the FCC to adopt the Coalition’s broader proposal to permit use of vacant TV White Spaces for cost-effective middle mile facilities on a fixed licensed basis expeditiously, while also permitting the unlicensed or “licensed lite” last-mile, point-to-multipoint and other uses that WISPA proposes. For more information, please contact RTG’s General Counsel, Carri Bennet.
