FCC Grants Additional Rural Tribal Spectrum Licenses in Alaska

On Thursday, May 13, 2021, the FCC issued a Press Release announcing that the Wireless Telecommunications Bureau (“WTB”) granted forty additional spectrum licenses in the 2.5 GHz band to better connect rural Tribal communities.  A complete list of the licenses granted is available here (organized by state) and here (organized by applicant).

As a reminder, licenses granted through the Rural Tribal Priority Window provide rural Tribal communities with exclusive use of up to 117.5 megahertz of 2.5GHz spectrum, which Tribes may use for 5G, wireless broadband, and other advanced services to connect their communities.
