FCC Order on C-Band Spectrum Fatally Flawed; Small Satellite Operators to Challenge Order in Court

February 28th, 2020

In response to today’s FCC decision on reallocating C-Band spectrum, ABS Global Chairman and CEO Jim Frownfelter said:

This Order is fatally flawed by its misinterpretations of the Communications Act, and by its numerous arbitrary and capricious conclusions.  The Small Satellite Operators (SSOs) are going to be harmed by the unlawful revocation of the right to use 60% of their licensed C-band spectrum, and we will ask the courts to overturn this Order and to instruct the FCC to start the entire process again.”
