The Federal Communications Commission today handed over 176 spectrum licenses to Dish Networks for the airwaves it won at auction earlier this year. Total bids for the auction reached $1.564 billion, which was the reserve price set by the FCC. At stake was the H Block of the PCS band, which covers a 10MHz channel: 1915-1920MHz for the uplink and 1995-2000MHz for the downlink. An entity called American H Block Wireless - owned by Dish Networks - won all the licenses. Dish Networks owns spectrum adjacent to the latter of these two blocks and plans to use it for a wireless network of its own.
