What sort of Internet superpowers will be unleashed if, as expected, the FCC votes at its April 23rd meeting to open up 1.2 GHz of spectrum in the 6 GHz range? To put this in perspective, the FCC’s proposal is an increase of almost 5x the amount of spectrum available currently available for unlicensed broadband. With features like 7 each, 160 MHz channels, low-power, indoor operation and automatic frequency coordination for longer-range outdoor applications, this band could prove to be a workhouse for multiple use-cases.
Partner Chip Yorkgitis and other experts will cover the various aspects of what this decision could mean, as well as other impacts on shared spectrum due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
