Notice No. SMSE-005-11 — Decisions on a band plan for Broadband Radio Service (BRS) and consultation on a policy and technical framework to license spectrum in the band 2500-2690 MHz

This notice announces decisions from the consultation process undertaken in Canada Gazette notice DGSO-001-10 — Decisions on the transition to Broadband Radio Service (BRS) in the band 2500-2690 MHz and consultation on changes related to the band plan. This notice also initiates the consultation on the policy and technical framework to license spectrum in the band 2500-2690 MHz (the 2500 MHz band).

Through a separate consultation initiated by Canada Gazette notice SMSE-018-10 in November 2010, Industry Canada launched its Consultation on a policy and technical framework for the 700 MHz band and aspects related to commercial mobile spectrum (see footnote 2) (hereinafter referred to as the “700 MHz consultation”).

Developments in the 2500 MHz band and the 700 MHz band have shown that both bands are suitable for the deployment of advanced mobile/broadband networks/services to meet growing user demands. The Department notes that a number of policy-related issues could benefit from concurrent consideration of the development of these two bands, as well as the development of the wireless services market as a whole. Industry Canada is therefore seeking views in the 700 MHz consultation on issues related to spectrum demand and on the possible need for government intervention to promote competition in the wireless services market in the upcoming licensing processes. Interested parties are therefore encouraged to submit their comments with regard to questions on spectrum demand (see footnote 3) and competition (see footnote 4) through the 700 MHz consultation process. Comments for the 700 MHz consultation are due on February 28, 2011, and reply comments are due on March 30, 2011. The possible requirement and mechanisms to promote competition specifically applicable to the 2500 MHz band will be addressed within the 2500 MHz consultation paper.

Submitting comments

Respondents are requested to provide their comments in electronic format to the following e-mail address: Spectrum. planning@ic.gc.ca, along with a note specifying the software, version number and operating system used.
