FCC voting on 700MHz D-Block (BlackBerry Bytes)

Comments

FCC LogoThe FCC is currently voting on what to do about the D-Block, the 700Mhz chunk of the wireless public safety spectrum which had previously been up for auction despite Verizon’s litigious attempts to block it. However, many commercial bidders fear that the auction plan as structured is not commercially viable, while public safety groups and a few members of Congress feel that the spectrum would be more effectively split into regional licenses rather than a national one.

Ars Technica has a wonderful summary of the entire situation, which can be found here.
