NPSTC Issues T-Band Update Report
National Public Safety Telecommunications Council
 
 
On March 15, 2013, NPSTC issued a comprehensive report on the impact of Section 6103 of Public Law 112-96, which requires the Federal Communications Commission to reallocate the public safety T-Band spectrum and begin an auction of that spectrum no later than 9 years T-Band Update from enactment, i.e., February 2021.  Additional provisions of that section of the law require that public safety relocate out of that spectrum within 2 years of the auction completion.
NPSTC has developed the T-Band Update Report, dated May 31, 2016, that supplements the original NPSTC T-Band Report.
The T-Band Update Report examines any changes in the demand for T-Band spectrum, updates relocation options, and clarifies the potential impact to the public.  The T-Band Update Report details the 325 full power and class A television stations in the T-Band and addresses industrial/business land mobile operations also that remain in the T-Band even if public safety were forced to relocate.
The update study confirms the conclusions from the original NPSTC T-Band Report remain valid.
