Before everyone gets in an uproar about this, has anyone looked in to the actual frequencies being used? I'm pretty sure Nextel has some licensed 900 MHz spectrum. I don't have time to dig around for the information but as I recall they do. I could be wrong. They certainly won't deploy an IDEN system in the unlicensed bands............Come on. They might however cause interference with unlicensed stuff in certain situations where you might be co-located on the same sites. From what I have read I think this is only going to be in selected East Coast cities anyway, and it's a band aid approach to the rebanding process.

Can you break this down with a little more detail and explanation? I would like to understand this as I think it is very important for us to know what they are trying to do here in 900 MHz.
