C-band Spectrum Proposal

The C-band Spectrum Proposal

Intelsat, one of the world’s largest commercial satellite operators, Intel, one of the world’s leaders in computing and communications technologies, have submitted a joint proposal under a current Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Notice of Inquiry regarding expanding the use of the 3700-4200 MHz spectrum from satellite services to terrestrial mobile services. Our market-based proposal was joined by SES Global in February 2018. If the proposal is adopted, wireless operators would be able to access new “mid-band” spectrum that could accelerate the introduction of 5G services in the U.S., benefiting American consumers. Satellite users would continue to receive services in the remaining portions of the band with certainty of continued high quality for C-band video distribution and data networks.

Our market-based proposal avoids a lengthy FCC-sponsored auction process. It is the most expedient solution to satisfying the need for nationwide spectrum, while at the same time protecting the vital television and data services provided to the U.S. by our customers.
