CBA Files Updated Transition Implementation Plan

The CBA submitted to the FCC an updated Transition Implementation Plan describing in detail how it would clear up to 300 MHz of C-band spectrum if the FCC accepts the CBA proposal. Demonstrating that the CBA is best suited to undertake this complex effort, the Transition Implementation Plan describes how the CBA’s member companies would accomplish (1) implementing cutting-edge technology upgrades and compression solutions to maximize efficient use of spectrum; (2) repacking customer services into higher frequency bands on satellites without service interruption; (3) launching eight new satellites to maintain sufficient on-orbit capacity; (4) designing and installing approximately 100,000 filters on an estimated 35,000 antennas in the continental United States; and (5) ensuring those antennas are tuned and pointed correctly to receive the same content after the clearing is completed. The plan contains detailed commitments from the CBA to cover transition and implementation costs incurred by customers and end users who use the C-band today.
