§ 22.948 Partitioning and Disaggregation.
(a) Eligibility —(1) Generally. Parties seeking approval for
partitioning and disaggregation shall request an authorization for
partial assignment of a license pursuant to § 1.948 of this chapter.
Cellular licensees may partition or disaggregate their spectrum to
other qualified entities.
(2) Partitioning. During the five year build-out period, as defined in
§ 22.947, cellular licensees may partition any portion of their

partition any portion of their Cellular Geographic Service Area (CGSA),
as defined by § 22.911, to other qualified entities but may not
partition unserved portions of their cellular market.
(3) Disaggregation. After the five year build-out period, as defined in
§ 22.947, parties obtaining disaggregated spectrum may only use such
spectrum in that portion of the cellular market encompassed by the
original licensee's CGSA and may not use such spectrum to provide
service to unserved portions of the cellular market.
(b) Disaggregation. Cellular licensees and unserved area licensees may
disaggregate spectrum in any amount.
(c) Combined partitioning and disaggregation. The Commission will
consider requests for partial assignment of cellular licenses that
propose combinations of partitioning and disaggregation.
(d) License Term . The license term for the partitioned license area
and for disaggregated spectrum shall be the remainder of the original
cellular licensee's or the unserved area licensee's license term.
