U.S. to expand spectrum for WiMAX technology

An administrator of the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) announced that U.S. government has plans to further expand spectrum for the emerging WiMAX technology, despite the fact that currently the early versions of the technology are deployed in the 2.5-, 3.5- and 5.8-GHz frequency bands and there will be auction for the separate 1,710- and 2,110-MHz frequency bands for WiMAX applications in 2006 and 2007. The expansion of the spectrum includes the 700-MHz frequency band, which is occupied by analog TV at present. NTIA intends to auction the 700-MHz band in 2008, so that it can be used for WiMAX technology immediately after the analog TV market is shifted to digital in 2009.
