The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has voted to explore repurposing up to 550MHz in the 12.7GHz-13.25GHz (‘12.7GHz’) range for next-generation mobile broadband services. The watchdog notes: ‘The FCC expects that this inquiry is the first step in providing for more intensive use of the 12.7GHz band, unlocking a significant expanse of valuable mid-band frequencies that may play a key role in delivering on the promise of next-generation wireless services, including 5G, 6G, and beyond.’

The FCC has also extended the 180-day freeze on filing applications for new or modified authorisations in the 12.7GHz band, pending the outcome of the new proceeding.
