1. A method of wireless communication performed by an apparatus of a user equipment (UE), comprising:
identifying a channel load for one or more first cells operating in unlicensed spectrum; and
performing a cell reselection procedure based on the channel load for the one or more first cells and threshold information received from a first cell, of the one or more first cells, on which the UE is camping,
wherein the cell reselection procedure comprises an intra-frequency cell reselection when a cell load value does not satisfy a threshold identified in the threshold information received from the first cell, and
wherein performing the intra-frequency cell reselection comprises:
ranking one or more second cells that satisfy a first maximum cell load threshold identified in the threshold information received from the first cell, and
selecting a second cell, of the one or more second cells, with based on the second cell having a highest ranking of the one or more second cells and based on a cell load for the second cell satisfying a second maximum cell load threshold identified in a broadcast from the second cell.
