No decision on C-band at ITU conclave

Reports from the important ITU WRC 2015 conclave in Geneva say that regulators have not reached a decision on how – or whether – a portion of the C-band wireless spectrum should be used in the future.

The frequencies are currently used by satellite operators around the world, and a proposal from the cellular industry wants to use some of the lower frequencies for mobile use. The C-band bandwidth under examination is from 3.4-4.2 gigahertz, and telcos are seeking 200 megahertz in the 3.4-3.6 gigahertz band.

November 20th was the end of the third week of discussion (out of four) and no consensus agreement emerged.  The WRC 2015 event wraps on November 27th.
