The 800 MHz band supports use by commercial and public safety users. In 2004, to address a growing problem of harmful interference to 800 MHz public safety communication systems caused by high-density commercial wireless systems, the commission adopted a plan to reconfigure the 800 MHz band to separate public safety systems in the band from commercial wireless systems.  The plan is designed to protect first responders and is part of  the commission's obligation to promote safety of life and property through the use of wire and radio communications.
