Less than two weeks ago the FCC released its Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) exploring basic questions of interoperability of wireless services in the 700 MHz band. Acting with lightning speed, the Commission has hustled the NPRM has into the Federal Register. Publication in the Register sets the deadlines for comments and reply comments in response to the NPRM – and in this case the Commission has been generous to would-be commenters. Comments are due by June 1, 2012  and reply comments by July 16.
