The FCC is preparing to auction 234 licenses in the PCS band (1900 MHz) as early as January, according to FCC officials. 155 of the licenses were recently transferred to the FCC as part of a settlement with NextWave Telecom, while the remaining 79 licenses have been returned to the FCC due to defaults and cancellations of bids from previous auctions. The licenses include several major markets such as Los Angeles, San Diego, Seattle and Denver. Most major carriers are expected to show interest in the auction, although special FCC rules may shut some major companies out in favor of smaller busniesses.
