FCC Opens Door for Globalstar Terrestrial Broadband Using 22 MHz at 2.4 GHz

The FCC issued a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) paving the way to allow Globalstar to deploy a terrestrial broadband network over 22 MHz of spectrum in the 2.4 GHz band.

Globalstar said the proposed new rules would allow it to provide terrestrial broadband services over its 11.5 MHz of previously-licensed S-band spectrum at 2483.5-2495 MHz, as well as the adjacent 10.5 MHz of unlicensed spectrum at 2473-2483.5 MHz.

"The FCC's release of Globalstar's requested Notice of Proposed Rulemaking last Friday represents a seminal development and yet another step forward in Globalstar's renaissance," said Jay Monroe, the Company's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.  "We look forward to receiving the public's comments and working towards a final order over the next several months."
