Charter, ACA Connects To FCC: Free Up C-Band Spectrum


WASHINGTON, D.C. — In a FCC filing submitted Tuesday (7/2), ACA Connects – America’s Communications Association, Competitive Carriers Association and Charter Communications teamed to present a comprehensive proposal for repurposing a large portion of valuable midband spectrum, C-Band spectrum (3.7-4.2 GHz) — at least 370 megahertz or more — for 5G wireless services.

These entities represent a broad group of interests that are both incumbent users of the C-band spectrum and prospective providers of 5G wireless services. The proposal, ACA Connects notes, marks the first time that incumbents and prospective new licensees have come together on an industry-designed plan for repurposing the C-Band, which they say is critically important to winning the global race to 5G.
