FCC is mostly done on Net Neutrality issues; the government agency is going to handle a new issue, airwave regulations.
For certain wavelengths the government is having exclusive access to communicate and transmit information to and fro without commercial interference, but FCC is now considering opening up the exclusive wavelengths for commercial purposes.
More and more devices are using wireless connections so it becomes important to have many options to communicate without any interference with other devices and competitors.
To get the plan into effect FCC should vote on it.
The bandwidth is between 3550-3650 MHz.
FCC chairman, Tom Wheeler said, if the plan is passes then it “provides an opportunity to try new innovations in spectrum licensing and access schemes to meet the needs of a multiplicity of users, simultaneously.”
The plan is in under development stage since spring last year.
Many technical issues has extended the time period.
But now the debate is done and FCC will vote on it in April.
However, it is unlikely that the new plan will be applied within few years.
