FCC contemplates new D-block spectrum sale

15 May 2008

The US Federal Communications Commission (FCC)yesterday voted unanimously to consider a second sale of D-Block radio spectrum. The FCC is seeking comment on how the new auction should be conducted and will accept public comments for the next 30 days, before responding after a further 15 days. The regulator was unsuccessful in selling the spectrum earlier this year when it received only one bid at far less than the minimum asking price.
