Ofcom Continues its Leadership Role in Spectrum Policy with Bold Proposals for 275-3000 GHz
FCC was once the world's leader in innovative spectrum policy and admired by its counterparts throughout the world. But the UK's Ofcom may be taking that title away with a massive wave of activity in a variety of spectrum policy areas. Shown here is the summary of a 9/26 document proposing that spectrum from 275 to 3000 GHz be all unlicensed.
It makes sense -- most of the reasons for starting radio licensing don't apply to such high frequencies where propagation is very different and most systems very directional.
But more importantly, why don't we see bold ideas coming from FCC these days?
