Verizon mixes up C-band, CBRS tests, Warns FierceWireless

From FierceWireless:

They’re not the first and likely not the last, but Verizon’s recent applications with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) show it’s advancing on the C-band front – as well as Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS).

Verizon’s latest submissions seek authorization to conduct C-band tests in the top Partial Economic Areas (PEAs) across the United States. It also submitted prior applications for tests in portions of the San Francisco and Miami markets. The spectrum sought under the special temporary authority (STA) are part of the recently auctioned 3.7-3.89 GHz that will be part of Verizon’s post-clearing assignments.

Satellite companies that have been using the spectrum need to move to the upper part of the C-band under FCC rules. That process will take months to clear the first tranche, which will become available to wireless carriers later this year. The next batch becomes available at the end of 2023, putting T-Mobile at a significant time-to-market advantage over the two biggest C-band bidders, Verizon and AT&T, in the 5G mid-band spectrum arena.

Verizon has been trying to make up for lost time, so to speak, by getting as much C-band ready to go as possible when the time arrives for the spectrum to be available. The tests under STAs are part of that process.
