The FCC has opened a Notice for Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) to explore opening up the 2.5-GHz band for wireless broadband. This band is currently used for Education Broadband Services (EBS). SHLB welcomes the NPRM since it has the potential to foster broadband deployment in rural areas and accelerate the deployment of 5G, however we must also consider the impact on educators and the public.

Join us for our next Grow2Gig+ webinar as we explain what EBS is and why you should care, how it relates to 5G, and the implications of the FCC's NPRM.
