  • Last week, clock phase bidding in the incentive auction ended. The forward auction clock phase generated $19.6 billion in winning bids on 84 MHz of spectrum. According to an FCC blog post by the Chair and Deputy Chair of the Incentive Auction Task Force, the incentive auction will now proceed to the assignment phase in which winning bidders have the opportunity to bid on frequency-specific licenses. The post stated that a Public Notice will be released to announce the schedule for the assignment phase. For more information, please contact Greg Kunkle ([email protected]; 202.434.4178).
