US: FCC okays AT&T spectrum-sharing plan

 |  October 29, 2013

One month after wireless giant AT&T allowed to let smaller rivals use some of its LTE spectrum, the Federal Communications Commission has given its approval of the plan, reports say.

According to reports, the competitors – usually in more rural areas- will be suited to support 4G mobile devices. A timeline for the implementation of this plan, however, was not revealed.

The clearance comes as Congress has yet to confirm the appointment of new FCC head Tom Wheeler, say reports.

The FCC is currently run by acting chairwoman Mignon Clyburn.
