On March 23, 2018, the Federal Communications Commission issued a Sixth Further Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (Sixth FNPRM) addressing the 4940-4990 MHz (4.9 GHz) band and set deadlines for filing comments and reply comments at 60 and 90 days after publication in the Federal Register. On May 7, 2018, the Office of the Federal Register published a summary of the Sixth FNPRM and associated comment and reply comment dates. Accordingly, comments must be filed in WP Docket No. 07-100 on or before July 6, 2018; and reply comments must be filed in WP Docket No. 07-100 on or before August 6, 2018. The Sixth FNPRM sets forth the comment filing instructions.

By this public notice, the Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau also announces that WP Docket No. 07-100 is the consolidated docket number for all further filings, communications, and proceedings involving the 4940-4990 MHz (4.9 GHz) band, as described in Part 90, Subpart Y of the Commission’s rules. WP Docket No. 07-100, currently used for 4.9 GHz band matters, inherits all open issues related to the 4.9 GHz band from PS Docket No. 06-229 and PS Docket No. 06-150.

As of the date of this public notice, parties bringing matters before the Commission that pertain to the 4.9 GHz band, including comments and reply comments to the Sixth FNPRM, may file only under WP Docket No. 07-100 and need not file under PS Docket No. 06-229 and WT Docket No. 06-150. The public may continue to access previously filed 4.9 GHz band matters under PS Docket No. 06-229 and WT Docket No. 06-150 in: (1) ECFS, the Commission’s electronic filing system, or (2) EDOCs, the electronic database containing prior orders, public notices inviting comments and replies, or other matters posted by the Commission.

Please note that PS Docket No. 06-229 and WT Docket No. 06-150 remain open. Filings that do not relate to the 4.9 GHz band – but which are pertinent to other issues raised in those dockets – should continue to be filed in PS Docket No. 06-229 and/or WT Docket No. 06-150 as appropriate.

This action is taken pursuant to 47 C.F.R. § 0.191(e).
