FCC To Reconsider Small Business Discounts

The FCC is set to unveil a proposal that will change the rules on small business discounts awarded in some spectrum license auctions. Currently large carriers team with small regional ones to bid on spectrum in auctions. The national carriers do this to take advantage of a 25% discount awarded to small carriers on some licenses. The FCC would like to prevent large carriers from taking advantage of this discount while still offering it to smaller ones. Even if the FCC does change this rule, it has to consider comments on the proposal, and changes may not take effect until after June's 3G auction, allowing national carriers one last time to buy spectrum at a discount.
