FCC C-Band Registration Deadline to Oct. 31st & SES Reimbursement Extended

Last week the FCC extended the deadline for registering your C Band Earth stations to October 31st. The FCC is proposing to have you share C-Band spectrum with new 5 G broadband systems.

If you want to be protected from interference from new 5 G broadband systems, you must register your earth station(s) by October 31, 2018.

SES has extended its program to reimburse certain stations for their registration costs to October 31, 2018.  Please don’t delay until that date in case the FCC’s systems experience additional issues.

SES, which is providing reimbursement for the FCC registration fees, will now provide reimbursement for earth station registration submissions from July 25, 2018 to October 31, 2018.

SES and Intelsat will continue to provide registration support at the following contacts:
