NAB Submits Comments to FCC Over Possible C-Band Moves

The National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) has submited comments in response to the FCC's Public Notice seeking additional comment regarding its proceeding on the possible reallocation to wireless carriers a portion of the C-band. This swath of spectrum is used daily by broadcasters to deliver news, sports and other content to tens of millions of radio and TV viewers and listeners.

In the comments, NAB urged the FCC to reject a proposal that seeks to replace C-band content distribution with fiber. NAB's comments also address a proposal to allow shared operations in the portion of the C-band that is not reallocated, stressing that such shared use would only complicate the challenge of protecting broadcast operations in the band.

NAB believes strongly that the Commission is in a position right now to move forward on reallocating 200 MHz of spectrum in the 3.7 to 4.2 GHz range (C-band) and that it should seize that opportunity. "If the Commission caves," wrote NAB, "to unreasonable and unjustified pressure to reallocate more spectrum in the C-band for terrestrial wireless services, it will no doubt be harming the backbone of our nation's audio and video content delivery system."
