  • Last week, the FCC issued its Public Notice requesting comment on proposed bidding procedures and associated rules for the CAF II reverse auction. A related “Technical Guidance” was released that explains and illustrates the proposed “descending clock bidding procedures” the FCC is proposing to implement. Just under $2.0B per year for ten years will be made available under this reverse auction that is tentatively scheduled for mid-2018 as the FCC must still develop the online bidding platform.
