BTA's Not Meeting FCC Minimum Service Mandates (where more Protection Sites are anticipated...)

by Sprint 4G Rollout Updates on Friday, August 19, 2011 at 9:39 pm

 

 

 

I've created this thread as a way to track upcoming Protection Sites. I will keep this thread updated, removing BTA's (Basic Trading Areas) once they meet FCC Minimum Service Requirements, or change categories. See BTA listings below...

 

High Likelihood of Protection Site

These BTA's do not have any 2.5GHz service from Clearwire and thus do not meet FCC Minimum Service Requirements. These are highly likely to get at least one tower of service between now and the FCC Extended Deadline of November 1, 2011.

  • Wisconsin > Wisconsin Rapids/Stevens Point (BTA #432)

 

Moderate Likelihood of Additional Protection Site(s)

These BTA's have some 2.5GHz service deployed, but definitely not enough to meet the FCC Minimum Service Requirement of 30% of BTA Population covered with useable signal.

  • California > San Diego County (BTA #482)
  • Puerto Rico > Mayaguez/Ponce (BTA #489)

 

Slight Chance of Additional Protection Site(s)

These BTA's have a decent amount of 2.5GHz service deployed, but appear slightly below meeting the FCC Minimum Service Requirement of 30% of BTA Population covered with useable signal.

  • Alaska > Juneau (BTA #221)
  • American Samoa > All Areas (BTA #492) - I have this one as slight because they may allow this license to lapse.
  • California > Fresno (BTA #157)
  • California > Santa Barbara/Santa Maria (BTA #406)
  • Guam > All Areas (BTA #490) - I have this one as slight because they may allow this license to lapse.
  • Hawaii > Kauai/Lihue (BTA #254)
  • Northern Mariana Islands > All Areas (BTA #493) - I have this one as slight because they may allow this license to lapse.
  • Oregon > Coos Bay/North Bend (BTA #97)

 

Not Likely any Additional Protection Site(s)
