The FCC is seeking comment on rule changes needed to implement the Commercial Spectrum Enhancement Act. It says this move brings it closer to auctioning off spectrum for advanced wireless services.
A key element of CSEA is the establishment of a "Spectrum Relocation Fund" to reimburse the relocation costs of federal agencies operating on spectrum reallocated from federal to non-federal use.
The spectrum covered by CSEA includes 216-220, 1432-1435, 1710-1755 and 2385 MHz-2390 MHz, as well as other spectrum bands that may be reallocated from federal to non-federal use. The 1710-1755 MHz band accounts for half of the spectrum the commission plans to auction as early as June 2006 for advanced wireless services, including so-called "3G" services.
