The FCC has issued preliminary approval for satellite services provider Globalstar to use its spectrum in the 2.4 GHz band for terrestrial mobile services. The company plans to use 11.5 MHz of previously-licensed S-band spectrum at 2483.5-2495 MHz, as well as the adjacent 10.5 MHz of unlicensed spectrum at 2473-2483.5 MHz. The FCC's proposed amendment of rules on the use of this spectrum is now open to public consultation before it takes a final decision on the matter. The FCC said that Globalstar's proposal to refarm L-band spectrum will be addressed separately.
