Industry Canada will release its auction policy framework later this year for the 3500 MHz band, but as an interim measure the department has opened up an additional 25 MHz of spectrum for fixed wireless access (FWA) services operating in that band. With the release of Gazette Notice DGTP-06-03 earlier this month, there is now a total of 175 MHz of spectrum available with the addition of the 3475-3500 MHz band to the core spectrum band of 3500-3650 MHz. The core band was changed from the 3400-3550 MHz band earlier this year (DGTP-002-03; RoW Update, Feb. 24/03).
