Instead, it should implement the nationwide non-exclusive licensing framework currently used in the 70/80/90GHz bands, with a few modifications to ensure that the spectrum will be used efficiently and may be deployed for [a] variety of advanced communications services."

In its own filing, Charter too voiced support for a "unified nationwide, non-exclusive simple shared licensing regime." The company also urged the FCC to implement the same spectrum sharing design across both the lower 37GHz band and the 42GHz band”.
