November 26 '07: Computerworld reported that a public safety communications group will get a license for 10MHz of wireless spectrum from the FCC "in anticipation of the spectrum being used to build out a nationwide emergency communications network." The announcement comes as other groups work to wrangle the spectrum for interoperable communications.
The group, Public Safety Spectrum Trust Corp., which is comprised of officials from most national responder agencies, said in a press release that the licensing of the 10MHz would help to secure wireless broadband frequencies for first responders.Specifically, Computerworld reported, "The group will negotiate a network-sharing agreement with the winning bidder on the" spectrum while administering "usage fees for the nationwide network. The organization will also review requests for early buil-outs and will manage public safety access to the commercial portion of the spectrum during emergencies."
