Sprint, WorldCom cling to their wireless spectrum
Posted: 24-Feb-2001 [Source: CNET]

[Two-way fixed broadband services in direct competition for 3G spectrum looking to be allocated by the FCC.]

by Patrick Ross, Washington -- "WorldCom and Sprint would like the world to know it doesn't make sense to enable next-generation wireless broadband services by destroying the very wireless broadband services they've spent billions preparing to launch. "The Federal Communications Commission hasn't said it will take the airwaves, or spectrum, from WorldCom, Sprint or other providers. But the agency is feeling pressure from a White House executive order to free up spectrum so that so-called 3G services--such as high-speed Internet access and video conferencing--can come to our wireless phones and help the United States catch up with Europe and Asia in the wireless market. And one of the spectrum bands being considered globally and under examination by the FCC for 3G is 2.5GHz, where Sprint and WorldCom are planning to launch broadband using a fixed wireless service that transmits high-speed data to small dishes mounted on homes and office buildings.
