Pai outlined the proposal in his monthly blog previewing items on the upcoming FCC meeting. For the Sept. 30 meeting, Pai noted that the proposed agenda calls for commissioners to consider making significant mid-band spectrum available for commercial 5G deployment—namely, the 3.45-3.55 GHz swath and the public-safety 4.9 GHz band.
