What’s the Problem With FCC Auction 110?

What’s the Problem With FCC Auction 110?

The next major FCC auction for mid-band spectrum, in the 3.45 to 3.55 GHz band is scheduled to begin October 5, 2021. According to the FCC’s Acting Chairwoman Jessica Rosenworcel, auction 110 is a key step on the path toward delivering a 5G future as well as brings us closer to 5G service that is fast, secure, resilient, and most importantly, available across the country. The FCC has had 3 auctions since 2020 but, this auction is important because mid-band spectrum has been viewed as the band for 5G services that offer more capacity at higher speeds than lower bands of spectrum, while having better propagation for distance and coverage than high-band millimeter wave.

To the extent that this legislation is passed, it will likely result in a significant increase in the supply of available spectrum which may in turn put downward pressure on values for existing spectrum licenses.

The Law Is On Your Side: Navigating The Sale Of Your Spectrum

Q&A interview with telecoms attorney Steve Coran:

“Now is a really good time to be holding an EBS license because there is a great deal of secondary market activity. It is a great opportunity for you as a licensee to assess what it is that you have, to understand its value and to decide what you want to do. You have a license that is now a major financial asset that may be more valuable to someone else than it is to you.”

What is EBS – the beginning

What is EBS – the beginning

Educational Broadband Service (EBS) started almost 60 years ago. In 1963 the FCC created 20 microwave TV channels known as the Instructional Television Fixed Service, using the 2.5 GHz band of the wireless radio spectrum. The ITFS name was subsequently changed to Educational Broadband Service. EBS was designed to serve as a means for educational institutions to deliver educational TV to multiple sites within school districts and college campuses.
