C-Band Alliance promises ‘to maintain supply’ after ceding spectrum to terrestrial 5G

by Peter B. de Selding

PARIS — The C-Band Alliance of satellite operators asking U.S. regulators to allow them to negotiate the sale of C-band spectrum to terrestrial 5G networks has published a commitment to current customers in an attempt to assuage concerns about future service.

The commitment largely restates what the operators have been saying in the year since Intelsat, since joined by SES, Eutelsat and Telesat, first floated the proposal of what they call a “market-based solution” to the FCC’s demand that spectrum be freed up for 5G.
