NRTC Broadband Solutions announced today that it will hold a webinar with information on the FCC Citizens Band Radio Service (CBRS). Join us at 2 p.m. Eastern time on Monday, Dec. 16, to learn more about fixed wireless, Internet of things (IoT) and the opportunities CBRS spectrum opens. NRTC members can register today.
The FCC has scheduled June 25, 2020, as the opening date for an auction of licenses in the 3.5 GHz CBRS band. NRTC members participating in the auction must do extensive business planning and regulatory filing in preparation. The NRTC webinar will help you with that preparation and provide a detailed discussion of why CBRS might be the best available wireless broadband opportunity for many rural utilities.
The webinar is the first in a series of activities NRTC Broadband Solutions is planning to help members design, build and operate broadband facilities. We also are scheduling events to help members explore funding opportunities, including the FCC’s $20-billion Rural Digital Opportunity Fund (RDOF) and the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s ReConnect Program.
