The Federal Communications Commission wants to hold a spectrum auction between television broadcasters and wireless network operators by 2014. The incentive auction would have broadcasters sell unused or unneeded wireless spectrum to mobile network operators so it can be used to provide mobile broadband services. The plan has been under consideration for some time, but FCC chair Julius Genachowski will float a proposal to his fellow commissioners that will be discussed at the FCC's September 28 meeting. The FCC hopes to finalize the rules for the auction by the middle of 2013 and hold the auction by early 2014. The proposal is in part a response to the Obama Administration's request to free up 500MHz of spectrum for mobile broadband.
