T-Mobile pushes its own plan for 600MHz mobile broadband

T-Mobile supports much of the FCC’s plan to reallocate and reassign 600MHz spectrum from broadcast TV to mobile broadband use but is suggesting a number of tweaks, said Kathleen Ham, T-Mobile’s VP of federal regulatory affairs. A group of wireless carriers, broadcasters and manufacturers recently suggested locating all paired spectrum above TV Channel 37.

“While we are open to further study with the FCC on the best plan to maximize paired spectrum in the auction, this approach has the benefit of avoiding certain potential interference issues that exist with the FCC’s lead plan and would encourage rapid development of devices that meet consumer expectations for cost and size,” said Ham.
