Mobile technologies, 4.9G / LTE and 5G, have technical capabilities and robustness, but the radio spectrum they use is still licensed and sometimes expensive to access.

The CBRS, or Citizen Broadband Radio Spectrum, was created as a result of a joint effort by the FCC and industry in the United States to share existing radio spectrum — previously used by the U.S. Navy for coastal radars, satellite satellites, and some wired wireless operators — and to do this, it is available for private use, some require licenses (called Priority Access Licenses or PAL) for wider areas and others do not (called General Authorized Access or GAA).

CBRS mainstream deployment begins in the United States In late 2020, the FCC announced the results of the CBRS spectrum auction to privileged access licenses (PAL) users. The FCC CBRS PAL auction is like a starting weapon to share the spectrum. And along with the availability of GAA in early 2020, these recordings can be heard from all over the world. Although the CBRS only applies to the United States, other countries are watching with interest how this spectrum-sharing attempt is evolving - and it has been very good so far. The FCC raised $ 4.5 billion at the auction, giving PAL licenses to 271 companies. The question everyone wants to answer is how will the sharing system work in practice?
