The Federal Communications Commission rejected Cyren Call Communications' public-safety 700 MHz plan on Friday, despite putting it out for public comment. The FCC said Cyren Call's proposal was contrary to auction law, but the FCC left open the rule making proceeding for public comment on the plan. Cyren Call Chairman Morgan O'Brien said the company will still seek congressional approval for the plan, which proposes to set aside for public safety 30 megahertz of 700 MHz spectrum that currently is designated for commercial services. The spectrum is set to be auctioned for commercial use by January 2008.
