This document contains the response submitted by the Jordan Open Source Association (JOSA) to the Request for Additional Notes on Amending the Instructions and Conditions for Licensing and Operating Radio Local Area Networks by the Telecommunications Regulatory Commission (TRC).
The response includes these main comments:
- The Jordan Open Source Association (JOSA) fully supports the TRC’s efforts to expand the range of frequencies designated for license-exempt use.
- The COVID-19 pandemic confirmed that Wi-Fi is tremendously important in the everyday life of Jordanians. We welcome the amendments proposed by Telecommunications Regulatory Commission (TRC) ’s to add license-exempt frequency bands which will result in improved Wi-Fi performance and better, cost-effective Internet access.
- JOSA strongly encourages opening the full 6 GHz band (5925-7125 MHz) for license-exempt usage and strongly recommends reviewing power output levels for Wi-Fi, increasing transmit power level, necessary for future WAS/RLAN technologies and Wi-Fi 7.
