FCC Seeking Comments About 5G 28 and 24 GHz Auctions

April 18, 2018

FCC logoTaking the next step to allocate millimeter wave spectrum for 5G and IoT services, the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is seeking comments about the application and bidding procedures for the upcoming auctions of 28 and 24 GHz spectrum.

In a public notice approved on 17 April, the FCC said it will auction 5,986 licenses in the 27.5 to 28.35 GHz (28 GHz) and 24.25 to 24.45 and 24.75 to 25.25 GHz (24 GHz) bands. The two are called the Upper Microwave Flexible Use Service (UMFUS) bands.

The 28 GHz auction will begin on 14 November (2018), with the 24 GHz auction following immediately after the completion of the first.

The FCC has proposed separate application filing windows for the auctions and seeks feedback on auction rules. Read the full public notice below:
