FCC Opens 3.45 GHz Band For 5G Flexibility

The FCC has voted unanimously on how to open up a swath of high-value midband spectrum in the 3.45 GHz band — currently used by DOD for key radar applications — for commercial wireless broadband (5G) and, separately, approved proposed application and bidding processes for the auction (auction 110) of that 100 MHz. It is seeking comment on those auction processes.
