FCC Seeks Comment on 900 MHz Waiver (8/20/12)
The FCC’s Wireless Telecommunications Bureau (WTB) is asking for comments on a request for a waiver of Section 90.155(d) of the commission’s rules and an extension of time filed by Telesaurus Holdings and Skybridge Spectrum Foundation in the Multilateration and Location and Monitoring Service (M-LMS) to meet construction deadlines for their 900 MHz M-LMS Economic Area (EA) licenses.
FCC rules require licensees to either construct and place in operation a sufficient number of base stations that use multilateration location service to one-third of the EA’s population within five years of the initial license grant, and two-thirds of the population within ten years, or to provide substantial service to their licensed area within the appropriate five- and ten-year benchmarks.
Telesaurus, Skybridge and four other M-LMS licensees received an extension in 2008 that required them to meet the five-year construction requirement by July 19, 2012. Telesaurus and Skybridge are now seeking preferred extensions terms that would extend the construction deadline five to ten additional years.
