U.S. lawmakers today introduced a bill to delay the pending sale of wireless spectrum in the 700 MHz range. The Auction Reform Act of 2002 would postpone a Federal Communications Commission sale in June of the spectrum. The spectrum is currently used by television broadcasters for UHF channels 52-69, but will be vacated as broadcasters transition to digital. Wireless carriers are expected to bid on the spectrum to use for spectrum-hungry third-generation (3G) networks. The Cellular Telecommunications & Internet Association (CTIA) industry trade group praised the legislation. The CTIA had asked the FCC for a delay, citing uncertainties surrounding the auction.
