This article talks about the proposal of Verizon Wireless to build out a nationwide network using 12 of the 24 MHz of spectrum in the 700-MHz band that has already been allocated to the public safety community. According to the author, the proposal would provide many capabilities and give the first responder community a common set of data and voice channels for interoperability. He thinks that the proposal is interesting and hopes that it receives the attention it merits.
