The Federal Communications Commission has adopted new rules to restructure the 2495-2690 MHz band used by Multipoint Distribution Service and Instructional Television Fixed Service operators. Specifically, the new rules eliminate the use of interleaved channels by MDS and ITFS licensees and create distinct band segments for high-power and low-power operations. The FCC hopes to eliminate the interference that has plagued the band and create incentives for the development for low-power cellular broadband operations, such as two-way mobile broadband applications, that were inhibited by the prior band plan.
