    VIAERO WIRELESS FILES REPLY COMMENTS IN CITIZENS BROADBAND RADIO SERVICE PROCEEDING

    On behalf of NE Colorado Cellular, Inc., d/b/a Viaero Wireless, LLGS filed REPLY COMMENTS responding to rulemaking petitions filed by CTIA and T-Mobile USA, Inc., that seek to make sweeping changes in the Citizens Broadband Radio Service regulatory framework adopted by the FCC two years ago for the 3.5 GHz band. Viaero Wireless criticized T-Mobile’s proposal to auction the upper 50 megahertz of spectrum in the band, which the FCC reserved to promote innovative, low-power uses by small operators. Viaero explained that T-Mobile’s attempt to hijack this spectrum would harm rural consumers who are currently benefiting from fixed wireless networks deployed by Viaero Wireless and other small carriers to deliver high-speed broadband services. Rejecting the T-Mobile proposal will enable small carriers to expand these networks to serve more consumers in rural America.
