The FCC today took more action ahead of its planned auctions for 5G spectrum. The FCC decided to keep the auction for 24 GHz and 28 GHz separate from the auction for 37 GHz, 39 GHz, and 47 GHz. The first auction is expected to begin November 14, with the second scheduled for mid-2019. This second series of bands needs more prep work before they'll be ready. The FCC today also proposed rule changes to speed up deployments of 5G cell sites. The FCC is specifically targeting utility poles and local ordinances that tie up carriers with red tape. The FCC hopes to make it easier for carriers to get 5G cell sites approved and installed. All the major U.S. carriers are preparing 5G, with some planning to launch service late this year.
