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.
