Spectrum Incentive Auctions: the Nuts, Bolts and Economics
12:00pm - 2:00pm
May 23, 2011
Rayburn House Office Building
The FCC and the Administration are proposing making an additional 500 MHz of spectrum available for new wireless broadband uses, 120 MHz of which is currently used as broadcast spectrum. In order to vacate this spectrum, policymakers are proposing using voluntary incentive auctions, which will require Congressional authorization. Questions remain on how these incentive auctions would work in practice. Discussion at the event will focus on the economics of auctions and the nuts and bolts of how spectrum incentive auctions should be structured to provide the most efficient outcomes for stakeholders.
