Get the Spectrum Back in Play

On August 30, 2018, EWA met with staff of the Wireless Telecommunications Bureau (WTB) and Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau (PSHSB) to discuss various pending matters as well as the possibility of a “buffet auction” of spectrum being held in FCC inventory, such as the remaining Part 22 “paging” channels, Automated Maritime Telecommunications System (AMTS), Interactive Video and Data Service (IVDS), and similar small-sized licenses. While the FCC is focused on several higher-priority auctions that involve the much larger blocks of spectrum expected to be needed for 5G deployment, EWA is considering petitioning the FCC to schedule an auction for these smaller authorizations.
