FCC approves 'small-but-mighty' 900 MHz tranche for private LTE for US utilities

According to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), approved usage of 897.5-900.5 MHz and 936.5-939.5 MHz spectrum for private networking, used primarily by transportation, utility, manufacturing, and petrochemical companies.

The decision makes these tranches of spectrum available for broadband licenses on a county-by-county basis. The remaining four megahertz in these twin holdings (along with segments either side, at 896-897.5 MHz, 935-936.5 MHz, 900.5-901 MHz, and 939.5-940 MHz) will be reserved for narrowband operations.
