With the pending launch of the first commercial 5G networks, the fixed wireless access (FWA) market has heated up significantly.
Apple, Facebook and Google are among those responding to critics who poked holes in a study by RKF Engineering.
An organization with the middle name “Spectrum Management” is telling the FCC to reject an RKF study.

Google Fiber and Nokia are among the companies arguing for rules promoting efficient spectrum use, but satellite companies see the proposed changes as threats.
