Earlier this month we reported on the FCC’s adoption of a Third Report and Order and Fourth Further Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (“R&O/NPRM”) in its efforts to establish an interoperable broadband network for public safety agencies in the 700 MHz band. In the notice of proposed rulemaking portion of that item the Commission posed a raft of technical questions relative to the design and implementation of that network. With the publication of the R&O/NPRM in the Federal Register, the deadlines for comments and reply comments in response to those questions have been set. Comments are due no later than April 11, 2011; reply comments are due no later than May 10, 2011.
