FCC seeks airwaves for new wireless generations
Posted: 05-Jan-2001 [Source: Reuters]

[Spectrum available for 3G use still being studied by government agencies.]

by Jeremy Pelofsky, Washington -- "U.S. regulators said on Thursday they have proposed the government give up certain airwaves to make way for new generations of wireless devices that could some day lead to video on a wristwatch.

"U.S. agencies are scrambling to find spectrum for companies to develop so-called third generation (3G) and other advanced wireless devices -- already hitting the markets in Japan and Europe -- that can handle digital multimedia and allow high-speed Internet access.

"In Japan, for example, "i-mode" mobile telephones have drawn in 14 million users who log onto the Internet with screens the size of a business card.

"The Federal Communications Commission proposed allocating the 1710-1755 megahertz (MHz) band, currently used by the government, for commercial purposes. It has also asked for comment on the possibility of allocating the 1755-1800 MHz band, which is also held by the government, for commercial mobile and fixed services.

"In addition, it has proposed designating the 2110-2150 MHz and the 2160-2165 MHz bands specifically for advanced services like 3G, switching from their current use for a broad variety of fixed and mobile services.
