FCC approved flexible rules for 3G mobile-phone service

FCC approved 3G rules in new spectrum obtained from the Pentagon and voted to permit fixed wireless broadband operations in higher frequencies on a commercials basis.

The auction of 3G licenses operating in the 1710-1755 MHz and 2110-2155 MHz bands will be held next year.

The 3G rules allow wireless carriers to deploy different technologies and provide for a mixture of license sizes. Mobile-phone operators will have the freedom to buy and sell license components. In addition, 3G licensees will have lengthy license terms (15 years) and strong renewal expectancy
