NN License Transfer
Obtaining Licensing for the 3.65 – 3.70 GHz Spectrum
In 2007 the FCC issued a licensing scheme that would allow wireless operators the opportunity to harness the power of the 3.65 – 3.70 GHz spectrum. This opened up new service possibilities for independent ISPs and other competitive service providers.
Currently, it’s not possible to obtain a new NN license, but it is possible to have a license transferred to a new owner from a previous NN license holder.
