DISCLAIMER: The FCC License View contains licenses that have been granted by the Federal Communications Commission, and is intended solely to demonstrate some of the changes envisioned for the Commission's new Consolidated Licensing System. Users are cautioned that this system does not necessarily constitute the complete record in any particular license and, as such, the FCC makes no representations regarding the accuracy or completeness of the information maintained in the FCC License View. Users seeking a record of a particular license are urged to utilize the Commission's official databases, such as the Universal Licensing System (ULS), International Bureau Filing System (IBFS), Experimental Licensing System (ELS) Cable Operations and Licensing System (COALS) and Consolidated Data Base System (CDBS), instead.

The information contained herein has not been relied upon by the Commission to analyze the competitive marketplace or assessing the spectrum holdings of service providers in any particular geographic area. Furthermore, users should be aware that matters not reflected in the FCC License View may relate to and affect the status of FCC licenses, including spectrum leasing arrangements, transactions pending before the FCC, transactions approved by the FCC but not consummated by applicants, future proceedings before the FCC, or actions in the courts.

FCC License View – a key part of the Agency's spectrum inventory – captures spectrum licensing information from multiple FCC databases and includes licenses that are active or inactive because they have been cancelled or expired. The majority of these licenses are not suitable for mobile broadband use, but rather for those using services like amateur radio and dispatch, which tend to cover small geographic areas.

The FCC License View is also not an endorsement by the FCC of any particular service, technology, product, or service provider, and the FCC makes no representations or warranties about the provision of service on the data included in this database.
