FCC Sets the Provisional Date for 5G Bands Auction
The US Federal Communications Commission (FCC) gets the apparatuses under way to hold a mmWave spectrum sell off in November.
In one of the blogpost, the Mr. Ajit Pai, a director of FCC, mention that, the FCC commission will vote in April on a public notice seeking input on procedures for separate auctions for the 28GHz and 24GHz bands.
The 28GHz frequency band will ranges from 27.5-28.35 GHz whereas the 24 GHz frequency band will ranges from 24.25-24.45, 2475-25.25 GHz.
The Ajit Pai also mention,
“The 28 GHz band auction will begin on November 14, and soon after its conclusion, the 24 GHz band auction will commence,”
“The 1.55 gigahertz of spectrum in these two high bands will be critical in deploying 5G wireless, Internet of Things, and other advanced spectrum-based services.
“And we’re not stopping with these two auctions. In the second half of 2019, we intend to hold an auction of three more millimeter-wave spectrum bands: 37 GHz, 39 GHz, and 47 GHz. Between that auction and the auctions for which we establish procedures today, we’ll push almost 5 gigahertz of spectrum into the commercial marketplace over the course of the next seventeen months.” said FCC Chairman Ajit Pai.
