Today, APCO filed detailed comments with the Federal Communications Commission regarding dedicated public safety spectrum in the 4.9 GHz band. This spectrum, which is uniquely suited for localized mobile broadband communications, was originally allocated to ensure public safety enjoys maximum access to emerging broadband technologies. APCO urged the Commission to take immediate steps long-recommended by APCO and others to provide public safety with the confidence that communications will be reliable and free from interference. APCO also made clear that the band should be preserved for public safety, and not reallocated for commercial use. Read APCO’s comments.
