RADIOCOMMUNICATION ACT

Notice No. DGSO-003-11 — Available Personal Communications Services (PCS) spectrum in the 2 GHz frequency range

The purpose of this notice is to inform interested parties of the updated list of available licences for PCS spectrum in various markets across Canada. Since 2003, Industry Canada has made PCS spectrum available for licensing on a first-come, first-served (FCFS) basis. Interested parties are encouraged to view the latest update on the Department’s Spectrum Management and Telecommunications Web site at www.ic.gc.ca/eic/site/smt-gst.nsf/eng/h_sf02092.html.

Process

The Department will use the first-come, first-served (FCFS) process to assign all remaining PCS spectrum. Industry Canada will implement a waiting period of 30 days from the date of publication of this notice before processing applications received. While not expected, should more than one application be received for the same licence, the Department will undertake the necessary process to resolve the issue, which could include providing all parties access or a competitive licensing process. This waiting period will only apply during the first 30 days after the publication of this notice, after which all applications will be processed as they are received.

Licences are subject to the fees established in Canada Gazette notice DGRB-005-03, available at www.ic.gc.ca/eic/site/smt-gst. nsf/eng/sf08105.html. Fees for cellular and PCS licences are based on the amount of spectrum assigned (i.e. the number of megahertz [MHz]) and the total population of the service area. Further information on the licence fees for cellular and PCS licences can be found in CPC-2-1-10, Spectrum Licence Fee Calculations for Cellular and Incumbent Personal Communications Services (PCS), at www.ic.gc.ca/eic/site/smt-gst.nsf/eng/sf01291.html.

Where a licensee intends to operate as a radiocommunication carrier, the entity must meet the eligibility requirements described in subsection 10(2) of the Radiocommunication Regulations and, as such, must meet the related ownership and control requirements (refer to CPC-2-0-15 at www.ic.gc.ca/eic/site/smt-gst.nsf/eng/sf01763.html). Licence conditions are available at www.ic.gc.ca/eic/site/smt-gst.nsf/eng/h_sf02092.html.
