The WCO Spectrum team is pleased to share the great progress we have made this year in advancing our mission to maximize value for EBS license holders.

Organizations across the United States are selling their licenses on a free and fair market. As of June 15, 2022 according to the FCC:

“Weld County School District RE-5J decided to sell its spectrum because the district wasn’t using it. It had leased its spectrum to a major wireless service and was receiving a small monthly lease payment. The district’s board decided it would be better to sell and get a large up-front payment for the spectrum.“

- The monthly income could be higher than your EBS lease income.
- You will now have liquidity and can sell all or a portion of your bonds at the time of your choosing when you need it most.
