FCC's plan for new spectrum brings worry for T-Mobile
posted by PhoneArena Team / Dec 04, 2008, 10:07 AM
With the addition of this proposal to the future auction, the FCC will vote on the rules on December 18th. What this proposal means is that the winner of the auction will have to dedicate at least 25% of the spectrum to 95% of the country for free internet access.
There are two versions of the auction platform; one with the proposal and the other without. Voting will take place only on one version, which ever the commissioners approve for the auction.
This is where T-Mobile comes into play. Engineers at T-Mobile have addressed an issue to the FCC that the airwaves in question are right next to the ones they own hence adversely effecting their spectrum resulting in drop calls or lost signal. The possible negative effects will come from uploads on the new spectrum.
The solution proposed by T-Mobile is that of pairing the new airwaves to 'another set of channels' for uploads and to limit the soon to be auctioned frequencies to downloads only.
The FCC has not included the request from T-Mobile in to the proposal put forth and has stated that they have done their own tests based on the accounts from the engineers concluding that they have put in a strong interference protection than ever before.
I would worry to if I was T-Mobile. VZW bought most of the new spectrum.

Verizon is already digital...CDMA/EVDO...its all digital. Why do people think Verizon isn't digital, they were one of the first networks to have wireless broadband! The first CDMA network to have EVDO upgraded to Rev A. And they have the largest 3G network. Its time to catch up people.

Actually, Sprint was the first to have their EVDO upgraded to Rev. A. Verizon, however, was the first to roll out EVDO AND the first to completely upgrade their EVDO Rev. 0 network to Rev. A (something which Sprint is sorely behind on).

okay #3, before you call someone else an idiot, you should understand something. CDMA and GSM are not different Spectrum. They are different ways of encoding a signal (different "technologies"). The spectrum is the band, such as 800/850/1800/1900/2100 mhz. Lots of different types of signal can exist simultaneously within the same band of the spectrum.

It took me from your post at 9:58:02pm to my post 01:35:22am, so it took less time for my response, than yours, which was over 12 hours later. And now this one is almost 24 hours later than yours so... And, I guess you're still making a difference in your life and not being a waste of life. Really brilliant come-back, by the way.

vzw is using digital along time ago since 1g // if you look at the history cdma analog calld cdma200 and when 1g came that where the digital took over // since then its all digital 4g its just effient and more speed for data . and the first guy was right tmobile should worry cause even its gsm ( t-mobile) and cdma(vzw) the new spectrum 700mhz will be used for LTE ( long term evolution ) and thats the 4g . and i apologize about my english its not my first nor second language so i have diffculties to write and type correctly .
