Bidder Restrictions, Spectrum Conditions Negate Auction Benefits :: Communications Technology

Spectrum policy continues to be a hot topic in Washington, D.C., as economists, policy makers and industry groups seek to shape the upcoming auction process and to push for quicker release of underused spectrum. At a roundtable last Friday, Georgetown University’s Center for Business and Public Policy gathered experts to discuss key issues.

Thomas Power, U.S. deputy chief technology officer for telecommunications at the Office of Science and Technology Policy in the Executive Office of the President, discussed the government’s efforts to free spectrum in the 755 MHz band by moving government users to other bands or technologies. He was encouraged by recent legislative efforts that included incentives for federal agencies to relinquish their spectrum.
