EOCA, CEA Want No Limits on TV Spectrum Bids

November 5, 2013

Restricting who can bid on TV stations selling spectrum could result in reduced FCC revenues and even a failed auction process. That’s the warning from the Expanding Opportunities for Broadcasters Coalition and the Consumer Electronics Association.

To make their case, the EOBC and CEA have released what they describe as a “data-driven analysis of FCC bidding restrictions” called ‘Maximizing the Success of the Incentive Auction.’ Written by Fred Campbell, former Chief of the FCC’s wireless telecommunications division, this report says previous FCC bidding restrictions delayed the provision of new wireless services to 68 percent of the public by a “weighted average” of nearly seven years and lowered net auction bids on spectrum by 31 to 61 percent.
