The Federal Communications Commission has voted in favor of a proposal that would free up UHF and VHF spectrum for wireless broadband use. The FCC has doggedly been seeking ways to recover spectrum for what it calls a looming "spectrum crunch." The reallocation ruling requires that: all the spectrum in the UHF/VHF bands be open to fixed, mobile and broadcast services; two or more TV broadcasters be able to share a 6MHz channel; and the power of VHF stations be increased to improve digital broadcast reception. The FCC would use incentive auctions in conjunction with the broadcasters to free up the spectrum. The National Association of Broadcasters has so far resisted FCC plans to reallocate TV spectrum. This proposal would still need to gain the approval of congress.
