Spectrum Solution Proposal

Intelsat & Intel: Spectrum Solution Proposal

Intelsat, one of the world’s largest commercial satellite operators, and 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. If the proposal is adopted, wireless operators would be able to access new “mid-band” spectrum that would help accelerate the introduction of 5G services, benefiting American consumers. Satellite users would continue to operate in the band with certainty of continued high quality for C-band video distribution and data networks.
