Another Major FCC Incentive Auction Closer To Fruition


If you believe in the power of 5G wireless connectivity, and how its roll-out may bring a consumer and advertiser renaissance for both broadcast radio and television, an FCC step taken Wednesday at its December Open Meeting will make you and those in your C-Suite very happy.

In a unanimous 4-0 vote, the Commission voted to approve a Report and Order that adopts adopt service rule changes for the Upper 37 GHz (37.6-38.6 GHz), 39 GHz (38.6-40 GHz), and 47 GHz (47.2-48.2 GHz) bands.

The R&O also provides for an incentive auction mechanism that would offer contiguous blocks of spectrum in the Upper 37 GHz and 39 GHz bands, and additional spectrum in the 47 GHz band.
