Now that June 12, 2010 has passed, what type of service is using the 716 to 722 MHz band (TV 55) in the United States?
FLO TV, owned by Qualcomm, was designed as a solution for mobile service providers to provide television programming while simultaneously easing network bandwidth concerns. The FLO TV system transmits data across a frequency band that is different from the bands used by mobile networks.
FLO TV operates in the 716MHz-722MHz frequency band in the United States. Before June 12, 2010, this frequency band was used for TV channel 55 in the U.S.
