Broadband PCS



Band Plan

Broadband PCS is allocated spectrum ranging from 1850-1910 MHz and 1930-1990 MHz. The Commission divided this 120 MHz of spectrum into six frequency blocks A through F. Blocks A, B, and C are 30 megahertz each and blocks D, E, and F are 10 megahertz each.
Some C block licenses (originally 30 MHz each) were split into multiple licenses. The splits created either C-1 and C-2 (15 MHz each) or C-3, C-4, and C-5 (10 MHz each). The C1-C5 delineation is not used for purposes of identifying the licenses.
