Comments Opposing Expansion of Licensing in 900MHz Shared Unlicensed Band

May 30, 2006

NAF, et al. vigorously oppose adoption of the Notice as proposed. The proposed rules virtually replicate the 2002 Petition by Progeny LMS, LLC (Progeny Petition), which attracted considerable opposition from a broad cross-section of industry groups. Other than the continued failure of the L-LMS Band -- a risk reflected in the absurdly low prices the licenses brought at auction -- the NPRM offers no justification for adopting the proposal.
