WASHINGTON - While AT&T generally approves of the FCC's proposed plan
for making C-band spectrum previously used for fixed satellite service
available for 5G development, it does have a few tweaks that it sees
as beneficial to the transition process.

At the top of the list is the proposal of payouts to satellite
operators who accept an accelerated relocation from their current
position on the C-band spectrum to the upper 200 MHz. The FCC says it
plans to provide incentive payments to those operators who take on an
accelerated relocation that could eventually total billions of dollars
of reimbursements, which service licensees would be required to pay a
portion of, AT&T says. AT&T poses the question then, what would
service licensees receive in return?
