FCC Changes Spectrum Bidding Rules

Article Comments  6

The FCC today voted to change the spectrum bidding rules before the Advanced Wireless Services auction on June 29. At the behest of many public interest groups as well as smaller carriers, the FCC has decided that bidding will be kept anonymous unless a lot is so desirable that there is significant competition for it. While large carriers and the CTIA were against blind bidding, many public interest groups as well as the Justice Department had wanted a totally blind auction. This compromise, proposed by T-Mobile, is meant to prevent large carriers from colluding on bids in order to to prevent small or emerging carriers from entering a market. The FCC has yet to vote on whether large carriers will continue to be able to bid on lots through small carrier partners, which are eligible for a 25% discount on final bids. It is unlikely this partnership will be allowed to continue.

hopefully T-Mobile US will get most of spectrum

T-Mobile US can use these spectrum to build 3G system, not only for own use, the system can be shared with regional carriers through mutual roaming agreement
good for both (win-win)
