Archived — Minister of Industry Announces Canadian Decision Regarding the 2500 MHz Frequency Band

A number of intervenors in the consultation process for the licensing of the 2300 MHz and 3500 MHz frequency bands requested that the Department clarify the status of the 2500 MHz band.

This notice is to advise that the news release entitled Minister of Industry Announces Canadian Decision Regarding the 2500 MHz Frequency Band is available on the Department's Web site.

This announcement confirms that wireless cable Multipoint Distribution System (MDS) and wireless Internet Multipoint Communication System (MCS) services are confirmed in the 2500 MHz frequency range and will NOT be relocated. These decisions will provide increased certainty to current licensees and allow the wireless communication and broadcasting distribution industries to continue advancing their services to Canadians.

Sincerely,

David Lefebvre
Telecommunications Project Officer, Wireless Networks
