The net benefits to consumers that arise from implementing an SDL at 1.4 GHz including faster download speeds in urban and suburban areas, support for a greater number of users and better in-building coverage16.   
Our estimates show that the harmonisation and use of 1.4 GHz for a supplemental downlink for enhanced mobile multimedia and broadband services could generate economic benefits worth as much as €54 billion for Europe17.  
These estimates may be on the conservative side given that we have modelled only the impacts of a low projection of demand for mobile data.  Modelling the impacts of a high demand projection would produce higher values for the benefits.
There are three additional major benefits from the use of an SDL at 1.4 GHz.  The 1.4 GHz band: ? Supports delivery of the Digital Agenda target to provide 30 Mbps access to 100% of the EU by 2020. This is an extremely challenging target for the market to deliver. Wireless has a key role in providing high speed broadband to remote and rural customers. The 1.4 GHz band can play an important role in providing very high speed broadband access required before 2020 to meet Digital Agenda targets and reduce the requirement for public subsidies. ? Increases competition in the mobile broadband and content markets. Limited availability of spectrum below 1GHz means that in many countries, operators will have little18 or possibly even no low frequency spectrum to provide mobile broadband services. The availability of additional spectrum at 1.4 GHz for an SDL will enable players to compete more aggressively in the supply of high speed mobile broadband and multimedia content. Increased competition is likely to result in lower prices for consumers. It is also likely to result in more mobile broadband capacity to experiment new business models.   ? Gives European suppliers an early opportunity in the development of innovative mobile multimedia services and new mobile broadband business models utilising an SDL. There is considerable scope for the adoption of 1.4 GHz for an SDL outside Europe such as in the Middle East and Africa, Australia, Canada and Mexico. Implementation of the standard in Europe will open up new business opportunities in international markets19, particularly for service and content providers with successful business models.     
What regulatory changes are required?  
The deployment of an SDL at 1.4 GHz for enhanced mobile multimedia and broadband services is compatible with Maastricht Agreement20. But it will require work by CEPT to develop the least restrictive technical conditions for the band, in line with the EU regulatory approach to technology

2.1.1 Economic impacts
High levels of broadband penetration stimulate economic growth by providing connectivity to the internet. For example, access to the broadband internet  ? Increases productivity by allowing more efficient solutions to business processes, better supply chain management and more efficient delivery of existing services ? Stimulates innovation and the development of new services and applications  ? Improves access to information.  The internet has certainly transformed the way information is accessed and stored, which enables improvements at all stages in the value chains of the economies of the MENA countries ? Enables restructuring of value chains, changing what services are offered and to whom they are offered.
There is a positive relationship between broadband penetration and GDP per capita growth. A recent ITU report estimates that for Arab states broadband penetration growth of 10% boosts GDP per capita growth by 0.18% to 0.21%.20
Broadband is widely recognised by many governments as enabling job creation. Jobs are created through direct employment in the network construction and telecoms equipment manufacturing, but more importantly through enhancing productivity and innovation in all sectors of the economy.  A recent study in the US found that a one-billion dollar investment in wireless infrastructure a year would create approximately 12,000 jobs in that year21.  
For middle or low income countries broadband can also play a vital role in alleviating poverty by improving productivity and extending geographic reach of markets particularly for small farmers and

The net present value of the benefits using 1.4 GHz for a supplemental downlink for mobile broadband in MENA region is estimated to be US$26 billion.  The results are presented in Table 5-2: . The quantified benefits of 1.4 GHz translates into $1.94/MHz/pop which is around half the European value of $3.90/MHz/pop (€2.71) calculated in our study for Europe.  

Broadband Internet also facilitates the development of new financial services such as m-banking and online payments. These provide increased access to financial services for many people in low income countries where such services are often scarce and conventional transactions are costly. In Latin America, a study by Fundacion Telefonica found that increased access to financial services can help reduce social inequality and alleviate poverty22. For businesses and governments such services also help boost efficiency by lowering costs of doing business while creating more secure and reliable means of conducting transactions.
As the examples above illustrate there are substantial economic benefits associated with broadband Internet. Plum’s recent study on the benefits of spectrum for mobile broadband in Sub-Saharan Africa highlights the importance of mobile broadband for economic development.  We estimated that the release of digital dividend and 2.6 GHz spectrum in 2015 could increase overall GDP by $82 billion by 2025, potentially adding up to 27 million jobs and lifting 40 million people out of poverty23.   
A number of governments in MENA countries have launched initiatives to stimulate investment in broadband networks and improve access to broadband. For instance Egypt’s National Telecom Regulatory Authority announced a new national broadband plan ‘eMisr’24 in 2011 which included targets for mobile coverage (98% 3G coverage by 2015 and 90% 4G/LTE coverage by 2021) and for mobile penetration (8 million mobile broadband subscribers by 2015 and 14 million by 2021). It is estimated that achieving 2015 targets will create 6,650 to 17,500 direct jobs on average per year, and will result in an incremental cumulative contribution to GDP of US$ 4.17 billion. Qatar’s National ICT Plan25 set out the following goals: to double the ICT sector’s contribution to GDP (to US$ 3 billion) and double the ICT workforce (to 40,000). This would involve providing high-speed broadband access to 95% of households and businesses, and achieving 90% Internet adoption. For Morocco, the key priorities under its ‘Maroc Numeric 2013’26 strategy are to encourage investment in ICT, increase Internet penetration, develop domestic IT sector and facilitate e-government provision. The plan is expected to generate an additional US$3 billion in GDP and create 26,000 new jobs by 201327.  
2.1.2 Social development impacts
As well as promoting economic development, broadband Internet access stimulates social development by substantially improving the delivery of social services such as health care and education. This is especially true of rural areas in middle income countries like Algeria, Egypt, Morocco and Jordan.  


4.1 The 1.4 GHz SDL provides significant downlink capacity
The 1.4 GHz band offers 40 MHz of downlink capacity that could help to alleviate the spectrum shortfall identified in the study countries.  A 1.4 GHz SDL is especially useful for mobile broadband because mobile data traffic is already highly asymmetric with much more data in the downlink than the uplink as shown in Figure 4-1. Moreover this asymmetry is growing as the video proportion of mobile data traffic grows.  Using forecasts of the mix of traffic produced by Allot and Cisco we have estimated that the current ratio of downlink to uplink traffic is around 6:1 and that this could rise to 10:1 over the next five years54.  
The ratio between downlink to uplink capacity is around 2:1, which implies a significant imbalance between the downlink to uplink traffic ratio and the downlink to uplink capacity ratio when relying solely on paired spectrum.  A supplemental downlink provides only downlink capacity and would therefore help meet the growing demand for downlink traffic.  
Figure 4-1: Mobile downlink (DL) traffic as a multiple of uplink (UL) traffic55  
                                                           54 Economic study of the benefits from use of 1452-1492 MHz for a supplemental downlink for enhanced multimedia and broadband services, Plum for Ericsson and Qualcomm, June 2011. http://www.plumconsulting.co.uk/pdfs/Plum_June2011_Benefits_of_1.4GHz_spectrum_for_multimedia_services.pdf ; 55 The data is based on measurements in live networks.  Median value is shown.
© Plum, 2012  26
4.2 The SDL is moving from a concept into reality
Supplemental downlink and carrier aggregation capability is now enabled in the HSPA+ and LTE- Advanced standards56.  Implementation of a supplemental downlink in actual networks has not yet occurred. However, in the US AT&T plans to implement the supplemental downlink technology in its LTE network using spectrum at 700 MHz, coupled with paired AWS spectrum which AT&T already holds57.  In Europe, ECC Report 18858 conducted an impact assessment of the future harmonised use of the 1.4GHz band59 and concluded that a mobile broadband SDL would generate the highest economic and social benefits of the candidate applications for the band. In September 2012 CEPT started the regulatory work to harmonise the 1.4 GHz band for a SDL60. An ECC Decision including the technical rules for harmonised use of the band is expected by September 2013.  It is therefore possible that we will see harmonised use of the 1.4 GHz band for a mobile SDL across European countries partially from 2013 and fully from 2015. In France, Orange will conduct an SDL trial in partnership with Ericsson and Qualcomm in early 201361.  A possible implementation timetable is shown in Figure 4-2.  This would mean that equipment would be available for use in the MENA region by 2015.

Dear Judge Chapman,




The general public must be informed of the injustice and the abused

that has occurred to the minority common shareholders and our families

had to endure regarding Terrestar Corporation, CASE # 11-10612

and Terrestar Networks Inc., CASE # 10-15446(SHL).




Terrestar Corporation and Terrestar Networks Inc., is part of a very

well planned and complex “PUMP& DUMP CONSTRUCTIVE FRAUD

BANKRUPTCY SCHEME”. It has been ongoing since the prior company

Motient Corporation. The scheme never went away. It simply continued

with the different characters.




Terrestar Corporation and Terrestar Networks Inc., were not supposed

to be tried in the Southern District Court of New York to begin with.

It was fraudulently taken to the Southern District Court of New York

.The former Appointed United States Trustee (She has been removed

and has been transfer across the nation to another District in

California) and the Appointed Trial Lawyer DID NOT BLOCK Terrestar

Corporation and Terrestar Networks Inc., from entering the wrong

venue. Hopefully this remains to be investigated by the Executive Office

of the United States Trustee Bankruptcy Fraud Unit and by other

Enforcement Agencies .Or will it be swept under the rug!




A shelf aged company was purchased by the in-house lawyer of

Terrestar Corporation from a corporate service company located at

Cheyenne,Wyoming .This was with the full consent and approval of the

members of the Management of Terrestar Corporation and as well by

the in-house lawyer in the creation of a shell company to file the

bankruptcies of Terrestar Corporation and Terrestar Networks Inc.,

in the wrong venue. And now appears that the Debtor lawyer was aware

of this fraud as well.




A single deposit for the amount of only $5,000.00 was made in the

Suntrust Bank in Vienna, Virginia .The address was listed was simply a

Call Center located in New York City by the name of

1-800 WEANSWER. Terrestar Corporation and neither Terrestar

Networks Inc., did not have any presence, neither employees, no payroll

or any physical office in the State of New York or at New York City.

Judge Chapman this was created by fraudulent means. And once again

and hopefully this is currently being investigated by the necessary

Enforcement and Regulatory Agencies.




Terrestar Corporation once owned 58% of Skyterra Communications Inc.

This company also known as “ LIGHTSQUARED “. On March 29, 2010,

Terrestar Corporation sold their interest ownership of the 58% of

Skyterra Communication Inc.,






only for $5.00 per share or for a maliciously low amount of

This sale was deliberately undervalued by

FRAUDULENT MEANS! The ownership of the 1.6 GHz Spectrum License

was owned under Skyterra Communications Inc. And the Brokerage Firm

Morgan Stanley, another company by the name of Jefferson-Pilot

and by other independent sources valuated the 1.6 GHz

Spectrum License. It was determined at that time, the valuation being

for the amount of $1.62 Billion Dollars and greater than $1.849 Billion

Dollars at that time.




Today, based on the testimony by a Spectrum Valuation Expert and a

witness in the bankruptcy proceedings for LightSquared and for Phillip

Falcone, valuated the very same 1.6 GHz Spectrum License for the

amount of the midpoint of $7.7 Billion Dollars. And Charles Ergen

valuated the exact spectrum for a whopping $8.9 Billion Dollars.

Yet the minority common shareholders were only paid a measly





Judge Chapman, countless of securities violations has occurred in

Terrestar Corporation and Terrestar Networks Inc. There was the

deliberate act in the diversion of the corporate assets from Terrestar

Corporation to financially benefit certain insiders including Phillip Falcone

and others. This was the creation from the corporate assets from the

minority common shareholders of Terrestar Corporation .The lack from

the Management, from the members from the Board of Directors,

including the Chairman of the Board of their lack of their fiduciary

obligation in protecting the interest of the minority common shareholders

of Terrestar Corporation.




The 1.6 GHz Spectrum License valuation was deliberately concealed and

NEVER DISCLOSED in the Financial Statements of Terrestar

Corporation .This is securities fraud when a publicly traded company

maliciously fails to report assets in the financial statements and fails to

report it to the Securities Exchange Commission, S.E.C. And Yes, Judge

Chapman this occur in Terrestar Corporation. Hopefully once again, we

are pleading the different Enforcement Agencies to address these

abuses and these violations.They simply “ COOKED THE BOOKS “ !




It gets better! FRAUDULENT TRANSFER or the violation of SECTION

occurred when the 1.6 GHz Spectrum was sold in March 29, 2010

and Terrestar Corporation filed the petition for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy

on February 16, 2011. Judge Chapman, this is once again a securities

violation when a publicly traded company sells a valuable asset within the

two years time frame when filing the petition for bankruptcy. Well, this

occurred once again to the minority common shareholders of Terrestar




Phillip Falcone and Charles Ergen were the partners in crime in the

deliberate financial downfall of Terrestar Networks Inc.,

and as well of Terrestar Corporation .

They were the “ BLACK MARBLES “, (Terrestar Networks Inc.,

Case # 10-15446 (SHL),Docket # 206, Page 114 to Page 119),

in which so called Financial Advisor from the BlackStone Group by the

name of Steven Zelin testified under oath confirming that both Phillip

Falcone and Charles Ergen had the control of the financial direction and

decision making of Terrestar Networks Inc., and of Terrestar

Corporation for their personal financial benefit. Today,

they are bitter adversaries!




Judge Chapman, they had the assistances from the Management, the

members from the Board of Directors, the in-house lawyer, certain

Hedge Funds, their Financial Advisor and others in the deliberate

financial collapsed and the elimination of our equity ownership of

Terrestar Corporation. Therefore that is why Judge Chapman we humbly

request that the asset of the 1.6 GHz Spectrum License be place in

control to an assign Special Trustee and to be appointed by the

Department of Justice or by a Special Prosecutor until a vigorous

investigation is completed by the different Enforcement Agencies

including the S.E.C., the F.B.I., and any other Enforcement and

Regulatory Agencies.




In behalf of the minority common shareholders and our families we

thank you Judge Chapman in giving a say in your court what occurred to

the minority common shareholders of Terrestar Corporation. As per your

wishes in the past, these court proceedings must be transparent because

the general public and our governmental officials must know what

occurred to us.



Truly it has been a very difficult and frustrating journey for many of us

in the stealing of our property and a violation of our constitutional rights

in this very well crafted Pump & Dump Constructive Fraud and

Bankruptcy Scheme.



The world must be informed of this travesty of justice and justice must

prevail. In behalf of the minority common shareholders and our families,

we thank you again Judge Chapman.

TerreStar Corporation, which filed for voluntary chapter 11 protection on February 16, 2011, holds 64 government licenses of 8 MHz of nationwide terrestrial spectrum in the 1.4 GHz band, covering more than 312 million people (the so called "1.4 Spectrum") to use the spectrum for high-speed data, or so-called 4G, networks. When adopting its service rules for these bands, the FCC established a flexible regulatory and licensing framework in order to promote the provision of new and technologically innovative services. Licensees may provide both fixed and mobile services including wireless internet, high speed data as well as advanced two-way mobile and paging services. These assets including TSC's equity interest in Terrestar Holdings Inc. ("TS Holdings") are now for sale.

1.4 GHz requires much less site density to match the 800 MHz than 1.8, 2.1 or 2.6 GHz

2008 Jefferies Implied Net Present Value of 1.4 GHz band Spectrum to Company :

Based on the selected range of perpetual growth rates (4.0% - 8.0%) and discount rates (15.0% - 25.0%),

Jefferies calculated the projected low, median and high value of the 1.4 GHz Band Spectrum to the Company

under each business plan. Jefferies then summed the low, median and high projected values of each business

plan to calculate aggregate low, median and high projected values of the 1.4 GHz Band Spectrum to the

Company, assuming successful implementation of the proposed business plans.

The resulting low, median and high projected values of the 1.4 GHz Band Spectrum to the Company were

$533.4 million, $670.3 million and $856.2 million
, or $0.23, $0.29 and $0.37 per MHz POP acquired in the

Transactions, calculated using a discount rate of 20.0% and a terminal growth rate of 6.0%. Jefferies compared

these values to the amount paid by the Company per MHz POP in the Transactions. 

See :


$/MHz-Pop is calculated as follows:
Total price paid for license(s)
Divided by (Bandwidth in MHz x Population covered by the license)
= $/MHz-Pop
Company X paid $1 billion for a 6 MHz license covering 100 million population
6 x 100 million = 600 million
Divide $1 billion by 600 million = $1.67/MHz-Pop

World's Largest Commercial Satellite Arrives at Launch Facility


RESTON, Va. and PALO ALTO, Calif., May 18, 2009 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- TerreStar Networks, a majority owned subsidiary of TerreStar Corporation (Nasdaq: TSTRQ), and Space Systems/Loral, the leading provider of commercial satellites today, announced that TerreStar-1 has arrived on schedule in Kourou, French Guiana where it is scheduled to launch on June 24th aboard the Ariane 5 heavy lift launch vehicle.

TerreStar-1 will be the largest commercial satellite ever launched and is designed to provide integrated satellite and terrestrial mobile services for critical communications using conventionally-sized dual mode handsets.

"The arrival of TerreStar-1 signals the start of final launch preparations," said Jeffrey Epstein, President of TerreStar Networks. "Once launched, TerreStar-1 will allow us to deliver on the vision of an integrated satellite and terrestrial mobile service that enables next generation applications anytime, anywhere."

Dennis Matheson, TerreStar Networks Chief Technology Officer said, "The design, manufacture and delivery of TerreStar-1 has been a team effort. We have relied on our colleagues at Space Systems/Loral for their experience and support in delivering the integrated satellite and ground system that makes our new services possible. We now look forward to a flawless launch by our partner Arianespace."

"It has been a pleasure working with TerreStar Networks on this challenging project," said John Celli, President and Chief Operating Officer at Space Systems/Loral. "With its 18-meter unfurlable reflector and extraordinarily powerful S-Band feed array, TerreStar-1 was designed to provide next generation capability for mobile devices."

Ideally suited to provide critical services to government, emergency responders, rural communities and commercial users, the satellite uses 2 GHz spectrum to provide voice, data and video communications to satellite/terrestrial mobile devices the size of a typical smart phone. Space Systems/Loral, working with Hughes Network Systems, has developed a two-way ground based beam forming technology that enables the satellite to reallocate resources based on demand, thereby maximizing capacity.

TerreStar-1 is based on SS/L's 1300 space-proven platform, which provides the flexibility to support a broad range of applications and technology advances. The satellite will be capable of generating over five hundred spot beams covering the Continental U.S., Canada, Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Operations in the 1695-1710 MHz, 1755-1780 MHz, and 2155-2180

MHz Bands, GN Docket No. 13-185; Amendment of Part 90 of the

Commission’s Rules, WP Docket No. 07-100 – Ex Parte Notice

Dear Ms. Dortch:

On March 20, 2014, on behalf of TerreStar Corporation (“TerreStar”),

John Dooley and Tom Eddy of Jarvinian Advisors LLC, Steve Berman of

Lawler, Metzger, Keeney & Logan, LLC, and I met with Blaise Scinto,

Roger Noel, Peter Daronco, Thomas Derenge, Brian Regan, and Janet

Young of the Wireless Telecommunications Bureau, and Julius Knapp,

Ira Keltz, Nicholas Oros, Geraldine Matise, and Ronald Repasi of the

Office of Engineering and Technology, regarding the above-captioned

proceedings.  At this meeting, we discussed TerreStar’s plans to seek

rule changes that would optimize the wireless broadband use of its

licensed 1.4 GHz band spectrum and add 10 megahertz to the nation’s

broadband spectrum inventory, while protecting the rights and

operations of adjacent-band licensees.  We also addressed the

potential pairing of TerreStar’s 1.4 GHz spectrum with AWS-3

frequencies in the 1695-1710 MHz band segment, and the potential use

of spectrum in that band for Wireless Medical Telemetry Services


TerreStar is the sole, nationwide licensee in the 1.4 GHz band, which

includes an unpaired band segment at 1390-1392 MHz and paired

spectrum at 1392-1395 MHz/1432-1435 MHz.  TerreStar completed its

acquisition of nationwide rights to this 8 megahertz of spectrum in

2008.1  TerreStar’s 1.4 GHz spectrum is subject to the Commission’s

flexible Part 27 service

rules, which permit a full variety of fixed and mobile services and allow

both uplink and downlink operations in this band.  As described in the

attached presentation, TerreStar’s 1.4 GHz spectrum has extraordinary

potential for 4G development and wireless broadband applications.2 

The 1.4 GHz band is in the lowest noise portion of the usable RF

spectrum, and this band enjoys advantageous signal propagation that

combines reasonably long-distance “canopy” coverage with short-

distance cellular reuse capability that supports high-throughput

deployments in dense urban areas.  

In order to maximize the 4G potential of the 1.4 GHz band and

augment the nation’s broadband spectrum inventory, however,

TerreStar believes that the Commission must make a number of

changes to the licensing and regulatory framework in this band and in

adjacent spectrum.  We discussed these necessary changes at our

meeting with Commission staff, and TerreStar expects to submit a

petition for rulemaking on these issues within the near future.  First,

TerreStar supports the adoption of a uniform power limit for downlink

commercial wireless operations across the 1.4 GHz band.  TerreStar

believes that the standard base station power limit of 1640 watts (or

62 dBm) would be appropriate throughout the 1.4 GHz band.  To

establish this uniform limit, the Commission must lower the current

2000 watt limit at 1390- 1392 MHz and 1432-1435 MHz and raise the

existing 100 watt limit at 1392-1395 MHz.  To ensure that critical,

safety-of-life WMTS operations at 1395-1400 MHz remain fully

protected from interference, TerreStar would commit to compliance

with an out-of-band emissions limit of 46 + 10 log (P) dB at the 1395

MHz band edge, a requirement twice as stringent as the existing OOBE

limit at 1395 MHz.3  The Commission could also extend the current

field strength limit (150 uV/m) at medical facilities to the entire 5

megahertz band segment at 1390-1395 MHz.4  

To optimize the 1.4 GHz band for wireless broadband, it is also

essential that the Commission expand this band to 10 megahertz. 

Given the bandwidth requirements of LTE and other next-generation

wireless technologies, TerreStar may be unable to make meaningful

broadband use of its existing 3 megahertz band segment at 1432-1435

MHz.  To address this bandwidth constraint, TerreStar believes that the

Commission should “re-farm” the 1430-1432 MHz band segment and

make this 2 megahertz segment available at auction as an extension of

the 1.4 GHz band, with flexible service rules for wireless broadband

use.  Currently, the 1430- 1432 MHz band is allocated and licensed to

general telemetry operations, except in seven markets where WMTS is

primary at 1429-1431.5 MHz.5  Under this 1.4 GHz band expansion

L-band, Jarvinian Advisors (March 2014). 3 See 47 C.F.R. § 27.53(i).    4

See 47 C.F.R. § 27.804.  5 Generally, WMTS enjoys primary status in

the 1427-1429.5 MHz band segment and non- medical telemetry has

primary status at 1429.5-1432 MHz.  There are seven geographical

areas, however, where WMTS and non-medical telemetry operations

are “flipped.”  In those areas, WMTS has primary status at 1429-1431.5

MHz and non-medical telemetry enjoys primary status in the rest of the

1427-1432 MHz band.  

Ms. Marlene Dortch March 24, 2014 Page 3

proposal, telemetry operations at 1430-1432 MHz (and WMTS

operations in the seven “flipped” markets) would be shifted down

below 1430 MHz.  Based on its assessment of current WMTS and

telemetry usage of the 1427-1432 MHz band, TerreStar believes that

all incumbent WMTS and telemetry operations at 1427-1432 MHz could

coexist within the 1427-1430 MHz band segment without producing

harmful interference.  

If the Commission re-farms the 1430-1432 MHz band and makes these

frequencies available at auction, TerreStar will seek to acquire this

spectrum, combine this band segment with its other 1.4 GHz holdings,

and create two 5 megahertz blocks of spectrum usable for 4G wireless

broadband applications.6  While this outcome would be an important

development for the nation’s broadband efforts, TerreStar believes that

it could put its 1.4 GHz licenses to their best and highest use by

obtaining additional spectrum in the Commission’s upcoming AWS-3

auction7 and pairing those AWS-3 frequencies with its 1.4 GHz

holdings.  Specifically, if it were able to acquire nationwide rights at

1700-1710 MHz (the Commissionis apparently planning to auction

geographic area licenses in that 10 megahertz band segment),

TerreStar could pair this AWS-3 uplink band with its 1.4 GHz downlink

bands, creating one 10 x 10 MHz paired band or two 5 x 5 MHz paired

bands for 4G broadband use.  TerreStar believes that the 1.4 GHz and

1.7 GHz bands are a logical match for frequency band pairing, given

their similar noise levels and propagation characteristics.  To this end,

TerreStar recently filed an application for experimental authority to

test frequency duplex division (“FDD”) equipment and devices that

utilize these downlink and uplink bands.8    

Significantly, it appears that carriers currently have limited interest in

the unpaired AWS-3 uplink band at 1695-1710 MHz.  Such “orphaned”

uplink spectrum by itself is of little practical utility to network

operators, and the expected auction values for this uplink band are

only a small fraction of the values for symmetrically paired commercial

wireless bands.  Pairing the 1.4 GHz band with this AWS-3 uplink

spectrum, however, could meaningfully increase the consumer utility of

the 1695-1710 MHz band.  

Finally, if TerreStar were able to pair its licensed 1.4 GHz spectrum

with AWS-3 frequencies at 1700-1710 MHz, TerreStar believes that the

best use of the adjacent AWS-3 spectrum at 1695-1700 MHz would be

for WMTS.  The use of WMTS systems for patient monitoring in health

care facilities is critical to patient safety, and an additional 5 megahertz

block of spectrum dedicated to this service would generate significant

public interest benefits.                                                  6 TerreStar notes

that wireless broadband operations in the 1.4 GHz band would not

raise any technical issues relating to the Global Positioning System

(“GPS”), given the spectral distance between its licensed 1.4 GHz

spectrum and GPS operations.   7 See Amendment of the Commission’s

Rules with Regard to Commercial Operations in the 1695-1710 MHz,

1755-1780 MHz, and 2155-2180 MHz Bands, Notice of Proposed

Rulemaking and Order on Reconsideration, 28 FCC Rcd 11479 (2013)

(“AWS-3 NPRM”).  8 See Application of Jarvinian Advisors, OET ELS File

No. 0215-EX-PL-2014 (March 14, 2014).  

Ms. Marlene Dortch March 24, 2014 Page 4

While medical telemetry applications have access to three major

spectrum allocations, only the 1395-1400 MHz band is currently

suitable for high-priority monitoring capabilities.  Permitting WMTS use

of the 1695-1700 MHz band would double the spectrum available for

such crucial medical applications.  In addition, low-power WMTS

operations would be far more compatible with co-channel federal

satellite systems than would higher-power commercial wireless


Low-power WMTS systems would be consistent with the Commission’s

proposed flexible use service rules for the AWS-3 spectrum at

1695-1700 MHz, and TerreStar urges the Commission to acknowledge

in its AWS-3 order the feasibility of WMTS operations in this band

segment.10  To the extent that subsequent rule changes would

optimize the use of this band for WMTS (such as a dedicated allocation

to WMTS and appropriate performance requirements), TerreStar

expects that such rulemaking could occur following the Commission’s

AWS-3 auction.

Pursuant to section 1.1206(b)(2) of the Commission’s rules, 47 C.F.R. §

1.1206(b)(2), this ex parte notification and attached presentation are

being filed electronically for inclusion in the public record of the above-

referenced proceeding.

                                                9 The AWS-3 band at 1695-1710 MHz is

also utilized by National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration

(“NOAA”) satellite systems.  Currently utilized bylegacy polar orbiting

satellites, this band segment will soon be used for the Joint Polar

Satellite Service (“JPSS”) and the sensitive GOES-R geostationary

spacecraft.  In particular, the 1695-1700 MHz band will be used by

NOAA for sensitive high-speed data links with the GOES-R spacecraft.

  Low-power indoor WMTS applications would present virtually no

interference risk to NOAA ground stations used in conjunction with the

GOES-R system. 10 See AWS-3 NPRM.

1.1 The purpose of the study
This study, commissioned by Ericsson and Qualcomm, provides an independent assessment of the economic benefits which would arise from using 1.4 GHz spectrum (at 1452 to 1492 MHz)15 to provide a supplemental downlink (SDL) for mobile broadband services in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA).  
Mobile broadband traffic in the MENA region is forecast to grow rapidly over the next 10 years.  It is possible there will be a shortage of spectrum to support this traffic growth unless additional measures are taken.  Notably the 1.4 GHz frequency range is largely unused in much of the MENA region.  It could be used to combat any shortage by providing additional downlink capacity to mobile broadband services.  This could: ? Increase mobile broadband network capacity at a lower cost than building additional infrastructure  ? Reduce the cost of providing coverage in rural areas and in buildings in urban areas ? Offer better service quality, through higher data rates and faster downloads as a result of the additional capacity and coverage provided.  
The purpose of this report is to provide evidence on the nature and scale of these benefits so as to help inform decisions about the future use of the 1.4 GHz band in the MENA region.   
1.2 How does a supplemental downlink work?
A network implementing a SDL uses a wider channel for the downlink than for the uplink, by aggregating the usual downlink with a supplemental downlink channel.  Using an additional downlink channel enables faster download speeds for mobile or portable wireless devices and support for a greater number of users, as shown in Figure 1-1.   
                                                           15 This frequency range is sometimes referred to as L band.

This approach requires new technology sometimes termed carrier aggregation technology. The technology allows the bonding of spectrum in different bands into a single wider downlink channel Figure 1-216 illustrates. This provides an efficient way of using spectrum because consumption of video and other data heavy applications over mobile broadband networks is asymmetric – there is much more traffic on the downlink than on the uplink.

1.3 The scope of the study
In this report we assess the economic and social benefits of deploying a 1.4 GHz SDL in the seven MENA countries indicated in Figure 1-3.  The results for these countries are then extrapolated to the region.
The seven study countries divide into two groups: ? High income countries: Qatar, Saudi Arabia (KSA), and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) (with GDP per capita levels between $22,000-$111,000 which are comparable to those in Western Europe) ? Middle income countries17: Algeria, Egypt, Jordan and Morocco (with GDP per capita of between $2,700 and $5,600)
These income differences are reflected in similar differences in the adoption and use of telecommunications services.   The countries also vary considerably in terms of population size and population density both of which have a bearing on our assessment of the economic value of an SDL at 1.4 GHz.
