Benchmark Waiver Granted to Alaskan 700 MHz Licensee

The Mobility Division of the FCC’s Wireless Telecommunications Bureau today granted The Alaska Wireless Network LLC’s request for a limited waiver to permit it to meet population instead of geographic construction benchmarks for a lower 700 megahertz band A-block license that covers the entire state. In a letter ruling released in WT docket 16-402, the division cited “the unique and unusual challenges of serving the State of Alaska.”
