FCC RIN: 3060-AK44 Publication ID: Fall 2016 
Title: ●Use of Spectrum Bands above 24 GHz for Mobile Services - Spectrum Frontiers; WT Docket 10-112 

In this proceeding, the Commission adopted service rules for licensing of mobile and other uses for millimeter wave (mmW) bands. These high frequencies previously have been best suited for satellite or fixed microwave applications; however, recent technological breakthroughs have newly enabled advanced mobile services in these bands, notably including very high speed and low latency services. This action will help facilitate Fifth Generation mobile services and other mobile services. In developing service rules for mmW bands, the Commission will facilitate access to spectrum, develop a flexible spectrum policy, and encourage wireless innovation.
