Just read this article on KUTV:


And some things really caught my attention. The most is the part:

Eyre and his team are working to send the school’s Internet to kids’ homes over CB radio waves.

Which obviously can't be accurate. But some other parts get me very curious:

They’ve spent $200,000 — nearly all of it CARES Act grants — on the new system that can serve a lot more households and ends monthly obligations to an Internet service provider.

So the question is What is this actually using??

Because the FCC ran out of acronyms, and because the author of the article likely doesn't know much about radio...

There are places where the FCC refers to CB and Citizens Band Radio Service, or CBRS.
There are places where the FCC refers to the Citizens Broadband Radio Service, or CBRS

Your average person writing an article for a newspaper wouldn't know the difference.

CBRS is the 3.5GHz band and is used for broadband internet.
