The article informs that Aloha Partners has received a waiver from the FCC, allowing the company to launch a pilot high-speed mobile data network in Tucson, Arizona, within the interference-ridden 700 MHz band. The move could set a precedent for public-safety wireless operators by allowing a large swath of 700 MHz spectrum to be utilized now, without having to wait for incumbent broadcasters to move out of the band. Aloha was prohibited from operating in Tucson because an analog vinced Flash-OFDM isn't the only technology that can operate in the band sans interference. A trial is likely to begin by the end of 2005, Townsend said. If Aloha proves no interference problems, the operator can launch a commercial service immediately, without having to ask the FCC for permission.
