The past two years have seen unprecedented changes in EBS licensing and regulation. There are now three distinct types of EBS licenses with different coverage, channelization, overlay status and performance requirements. New license renewal requirements reflect heightened regulatory scrutiny, while changes in eligibility may result in seismic shifts in EBS license ownership. Learn what you need to know now to understand the new EBS landscape and protect your interests.
