850 MHz Cellular License Maps (no PCS systems)
These maps display the named owner of the cellular licenses as reported by the FCC. These are only the licenses defined by the FCC as "Cellular" bands and are using 850 MHz channels. NOTE about 850 MHz Coverage maps.

850 MHz was the first cellular band in the US, located in the 824 to 896 MHz frequency range and is believed to have the most established coverage in the US. The FCC has since assigned additional frequency bands for cellular and wireless use, each with the potential to provide equal or better coverage under certain circumstances. The FCC cellular assignments that are generally used by wireless devices in the US now utilize the following frequency bands:
  • 600 MHz ("Re-Packed" TV Channels)
  • 700 MHz (Former Analog TV Channels)
  • 806 MHz (ESMR)
  • 850 MHz (Cellular Channels)
  • 1750 MHz (AWS)
  • 1900 MHz (PCS)
  • 2100 MHz (AWS)
  • 2400 MHz (Wi-Fi)
  • 2500 MHz
  • 3.5 GHz (Proposed 5G)
  • 5.4 GHz (Wi-Fi)
  • 28 GHz (Proposed 5G)
Because the 850 MHz band is no longer dominant either by use or by propagation characteristics, we will no longer be updating the associated 850 MHz maps. The data on these regional maps were accurate as of 2012.
