The 700 MHz auction scheduled to begin in June will go ahead as planned, FCC Commissioner Kathleen Abernathy said today.

Wireless carriers are calling for a delay due to the uncertain timetable for broadcasters' departure from the frequencies. Television broadcasters have until 2006 or until 85 percent of Americans can receive digital TV signals to move from the 700 MHz band.
