3G Auction Set For June 29
Feb 1, 2006, 3:19 PM by (staff)
The FCC has finally announced June 29 as the date for the 3G spectrum auction. The auction will consist of 1,122 licenses for spectrum pairs in the 1700 and 2100 MHz bands. One month ago, the NTIA finally approved the government clearing current services out of this spectrum, provided the auction could raise $935 million. Hurdles such as NTIA and other administrative or legal approvals have delayed FCC auctions in the past, and might still delay this auction, as small business discounts and other auction procedures are still under debate.
