Federal Communications Commission Edit

The FCC's Broadband Division of the Wireless Telecommunications Bureau is responsible for developing policy and rules that facilitate rapid, widespread deployment of wireless communications services. Along with the Mobility Division, it oversees nearly two million licenses used to provide an array of wireless services.

The Broadband Division helps carry out the Wireless Telecommunications Bureau's mission by administering the rules and regulations for spectrum licenses ranging from wireless broadband such as Advanced Wireless Service (AWS), Broadband Radio Service (BRS) and Educational Broadband Service (EBS), to wireless backhaul, to broadcast auxiliary services such as wireless microphones. The Broadband Division also works on policy issues such as open Internet, mobile content, accessibility and repurposing spectrum for wireless broadband deployment.
