FCC to Commence Spectrum Auction That will Provide American Consumers New Wireless Broadband Services
In a letter to Assistant Secretary for Communications and Information Michael D. Gallagher, FCC Chairman Michael K. Powell stated that the Commission intends to commence an auction for Advanced Wireless Services licenses in the 1710-1755 MHz and 2110-2155 MHz bands as early as June 2006.
This MO&O grants the applications seeking consent for the assignment of C and F block PCS licenses from the Summit DIPs to the Liquidating Trust and grants a limited waiver of Section 1.2111(c) of the Commission's rules.
In this Order the Commission concludes its consideration of the issues raised in the Auction No. 52 Comment Public Notice relating to eligibility for Direct Broadcast Satellite ("DBS") service licenses.
