USA: FCC expands use of 12.2 – 12.7 and 12.7 – 13.25 GHz frequency bands

The expansion has been defined in publication “FCC 23-36”.

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in the U.S. released Report and Order and Further Notice of Proposed Rulemaking FCC 23-36 on May 19, 2023, to expand the use of 1050 MHz in the 12 GHz band for terrestrial and satellite communications systems, promoting technological innovation and bolstering the growth of the nation’s economy.

The rules reserve spectrum in the 12.2-12.7 GHz band for current and future satellite services and propose measures to allow use of the 12.7-13.25 GHz band for terrestrial wireless services, such as 6G services.

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is taking a holistic approach to expand the use of more than 1 GHz of prime mid-frequency spectrum in the 12 GHz band by ensuring stable spectrum access for current and future satellite services while enabling advanced terrestrial wireless services.

This approach paves the way for advanced satellite and terrestrial services to access spectrum resources to meet consumer needs and help connect everyone everywhere and promote wireless services.
