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.
A virtual fireside chat with the two of the most well-informed and influential people in the business of transacting Educational Broadband Service (EBS) spectrum. SPEAKERS: Andreas Bitzarakis, Stephen E. Coran, and Carl Katerndahl.
Proposed legislation may cause increase in spectrum supply. In March 2021, Senator Mike Lee (R-Utah) introduced the Government Spectrum Valuation Act. The legislation requires the National Telecommunications and Information Administration to audit the holdings and value of all spectrum assigned to federal agencies, including the Department of Defense. 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.
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.
