FCC to Revise Cross-Carrier Spectrum Sales

The Federal Communications Commission today indicated that it plans to review how much spectrum a single wireless network operator should be allowed to own in any given market, how much of that spectrum is below 1GHz, and how carriers sell or divest spectrum to one another. The five commissioners will circulate a policy proposal, which will likely be voted on September 28. At that point, the FCC will seek input from the wireless industry and public before putting together a final set of revised rules. Both AT&T and Sprint welcomed the FCC's review, as they believe the current rules don't appropriately account for the performance differences that some spectrum (700 - 900MHZ) has when compared to other spectrum (1700 - 2100MHz). The review process will likely take several months to complete.
