I missed this announcement last week.


The FCC’s Wireless Telecommunications Bureau today granted temporary 
spectrum access to 33 wireless Internet service providers serving 330
counties in 29 states to help them serve rural communities facing an 
increase in broadband needs during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Special 
Temporary Authority (STA) granted today allows these companies to use the 
lower 45 megahertz of spectrum in the 5.9 GHz band for 60 days.
