Included in the auction requirements issued by the FCC:

H Block Interim Buildout Requirement: Within four (4) years, a licensee shall provide
reliable signal coverage and offer service to at least forty (40) percent of the population in
each of its license areas.
·
H Block Final Buildout Requirement: Within ten (10) years, a licensee shall provide
reliable signal coverage and offer service to at least seventy-five (75) percent of the
population in each of its license areas.

In addition, the Commission adopted the following penalties for failure to meet the
buildout benchmarks:
·
Failure to Meet H Block Interim Buildout Requirement: Where a licensee fails to meet
the H Block Interim Buildout Requirement in its license area, the H Block license term
and the Final Buildout Requirement shall be accelerated by two years (for both the
license term and final requirement, from ten to eight years).
·
Failure to Meet H Block Final Buildout Requirement: Where a licensee fails to meet the
H Block Final Buildout Requirement in any EA, its authorization for each EA in which it
fails to meet the requirement shall terminate automatically without Commission action.
