NextNav petitions FCC for new spectrum band

Jul 2024 | No Comment

NextNav has filed a rulemaking petition asking the Federal Communications Commission (“FCC”) to deliver an innovative spectrum solution in the Lower 900 MHz band (902-928 MHz band). The petition proposes rearranging the band to facilitate a terrestrial PNT network and broadband.

The petition specifically asks the FCC to reconfigure the band plan and adopt new rules to:

  • Enable a high-quality terrestrial complement and backup to the Global Positioning System (“GPS”) on which the nation relies for essential PNT services.
  • Provide 15 megahertz of low-band spectrum for use by mobile broadband networks.

NextNav recently announced that it had signed an agreement to acquire spectrum licenses covering an additional 4 MHz in the lower 900 MHz band from Telesaurus Holdings GB LLC and Skybridge Spectrum Foundation. On March 28, 2024, the Superior Court of the State of California, County of Alameda issued an Order approving the Receiver’s request to sell all of its Lower 900 MHz spectrum holdings to NextNav, allowing the parties to move forward with obtaining FCC approval.
