Despite months of verbal and written protests from across the US transportation industry, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is now moving ahead with its course – first set in a November 2020 vote – to split the 5.9GHz band, previously reserved for transportation safety.

ITS America reflected concerns of state DOTs in voicing opposition to the splitting of the band, but now the FCC has released the 5.9 GHz First Report and Order to the Public Inspection Desk at the Federal Register (the order is scheduled to be officially published this coming Monday, May 3), ITS America president and CEO Shailen Bhatt, is shifting focus to protecting the 30MHz remaining for transportation safety from interference.
