Local Multipoint Communication Systems (LMCS) in the 28 GHz Range: Policy, Authorization Procedure, and Evaluation Criteria

Appendix B Table 2 Definition of Service Areas

The definition of the service areas was made using Canada Post Corporation’s Forward Sortation Areas (FSA) and associated census information. FSAs are the areas represented by the first three characters of the postal code. There are two types of FSA's: urban and rural. Urban FSAs are served by approximately 25 postal walks. Rural FSAs encompass not more than 199 rural postal offices. Only urban FSAs were considered in the determination of LMCS service areas because the population density of rural FSAs was believed to be too low to render LMCS service economically viable. Their non-inclusion here does not preclude any interested party from applying to provide service in these areas.

Based on the 1991 census information for each FSA, the FSAs were grouped to form service areas. An agglomeration of adjacent FSAs must consist of at least 10 000 households to be considered for an LMCS service area. Two FSAs are considered adjacent if they are separated by less than 8 kilometres.

Graphical representations of the service areas are provided in Appendix E.
