NEBSA Updates - The Future of EBS: The FCC Rulemaking Explained

The National EBS Association (NEBSA) is pleased to announce that, on Thursday, July 18 at 2:00 PM (ET), it will present a webinar to help explain the FCC’s decision (scheduled to be adopted at its meeting on July 10) that will make substantial changes to the rules governing the EBS (2.5Ghz) band. This one-hour event will be hosted by NEBSA’s Executive Director, Lee Solonche and feature Todd Gray, NEBSA general counsel and partner with Gray Miller Persh LLP, and Ed Lavergne, counsel for the Catholic Technology Network (CTN) and Principal attorney with Fish & Richardson PC. Our speakers are national experts in EBS matters and have been extensively involved in advocating for the interests of the EBS community in this rulemaking.

The webinar will provide a thorough summary of the FCC’s decision, describe how the FCC’s decision will affect current EBS licensees as well as those who might seek to obtain a new EBS license, and offer thoughts on what EBS licensees need to do to protect their licenses and leases. The webinar will also explain the FCC process going forward, including possible options for reconsideration of the FCC’s decision. There will be an opportunity for participants to ask questions at the end of the formal presentation.

There is no cost for this webinar but pre-registration is required. Make plans now to join with your colleagues in learning more about the future of EBS!
