The articles reports that New York City has filed an application to build a 700 megahertz (MHZ) public safety broadband wireless network. A waiver request was filed to use the 10 MHz D Block frequencies held by the Public Safety Spectrum Trust (PSST). The 700 MHz network will utilize Long Term Evolution (LTE) as its broadband wireless network and will be configured to meet established standards for a national broadband network. The city has already built a 2.5 GHz broadband network for its public safety standards.
