US and Canada agree to share spectrum along border

US Canada

If you’ve ever been to the US/Canada border, you know that service can become an issue. Fortunately for those who travel often between the two countries, or live near the border, it seems as if the issue is (at least temporarily) solved.

The United States and Canada have agreed to share multiple bands of spectrum along the border. The agreement covers public safety networks, AWS (1,700MHz and 2,100MHz), PCS (1,900MHz), and even WiFi hotspot coverage and spectrum. If you like to visit the border, it seems as if you may not have coverage problems much longer.
