Publication Date: 
July 21, 2023

Member organizations of the 4.9 GHz Coalition (Coalition) today filed a joint response to the Public Safety Spectrum Alliance’s (PSSA) ex parte recommendation that the FCC award the FirstNet Authority (FirstNet) a nationwide 4.9 GHz license and the right to select the 4.9 GHz band manager. The PSSA organization has been labeled by some as simply a proxy for FirstNet and, by extension, for AT&T. Coalition member organizations include the American Petroleum Institute, Enterprise Wireless Alliance, Forestry Conservation Communications Association, International Municipal Signal Association, National Sheriff’s Association and the Utilities Technology Council.
