FCC To Auction New Spectrum for 3G

Article Comments  3

The FCC today announced plans to auction two new 10 MHz bands of spectrum for 3G services. The lower band - 1915-1920 MHz paired with 1995-2000 MHz - is the PCS "H Block", which is just above the 10 MHz "G Block" that the FCC is currently proposing be assigned to Nextel to solve interference issues. The FCC downplayed complaints from Sprint and Nokia that the new H Block would interfere with existing PCS networks. The other new band spans 2020-2025 MHz, paired with 2175-2180 MHz. The FCC is seeking comment on how to divide the licenses geographically, among other issues, and plans to hold auctions within 15 months. The Commission also made progress on clearing an additional 120 MHz of spectrum for 3G in the 1.7 GHz and 2.1 GHz bands, denying petitions for reconsideration.
