      Though Sprint Nextel continues to experience capacity issues with its iDEN
      network, the company says capacity will not delay its 800 MHz public-safety
      licensees rebanding.
      According to Mobile Radio Techology (MRT), public-safety officials have
      questioned why no licensees have been moved to their new frequencies - Channels
      1-120 - though the program is almost two years under way and was scheduled to
      be completed in three years.
      Larry Krevor, Sprint Nextel's vice president of government affairs for
      spectrum, told MRT that Sprint Nextel will not cause delays to rebanding, and that
      the carrier is fully committed to completing the mission. Though it is not
      clear that public-safety licensees will be able to reband their systems as
      soon as they are ready, several factors, including interoperability, need to be
      coordinated.
      Krevor also told MRT that it is crucial that the FCC act on a joint request
      from NPSPAC licensees and Sprint Nextel to identify public-safety entities
      that can move this year and establish benchmarks for future progress.
