US Spectrum Plans Need More Money and Research
Posted: 23-Aug-2001 [Source: ComputerWire]

[US 3G spectrum allocation could cost the mobile industry additional billions according to recently released GAO report.]

by Sinead Carew -- "The mobile industry's attempts to take control of spectrum currently used by the US Department of Defense will take more money and analysis than previously expected, according to a report by the US General Accounting Office.

"The report published on Monday warned that reallocating the DoD from the 1755MHz-1850MHz spectrum band could cost the mobile industry billions more than already estimated. Mobile operators are anxious to get hold of the extra spectrum in order to deploy bandwidth-hungry third-generation mobile data networks.

"The DoD had already estimated that reallocation would cost about $4bn, but in its report the GAO argued that this figure could be a lot higher. The report noted: "The DoD cost estimate is potentially understated by billions of dollars because the department did not include satellite replacement costs."
