The article reports that carriers are waiting for the details of the change in rules on broadband radio service/educational broadband service (BRS/EBS) spectrum by the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC). The new rules would double leasing periods and make licensing areas smaller. Sprint Nextel, BellSouth and Clearwire have leased licenses for some spectrum in the same bandwidth for other purposes. The leasing rules of FCC were constructed by the Wireless Communications Association and Catholic Television.
