A report from the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) has cleared the way for the US's proposed 3G auction. The report concluded that transitioning government agencies to new spectrum in order to clear a block between 1710 - 1755 MHz will cost about $935 million. The government expects to make more than this in the spectrum auction. The complementary 45 MHz in the 2100 band have already been cleared. While carriers like T-Mobile have stated they are waiting for this new spectrum to launch 3G services, other carriers that have already launched 3G will be interested in the spectrum for future protocols or additional services.
