FCC Adopts Rules for First Ever Incentive Auction

The rules adopted today establish the foundation for the Incentive Auction. Based on these rules the FCC will develop and seek additional public input on detailed, final auction procedures in the pre-auction process.

There are four parts to the rules implementing the Incentive Auction:
1) The reorganized 600 MHz Band, including repacking and unlicensed operations;
2) The Incentive Auction process and design;
3) The post-auction transition for all incumbents in the 600 MHz band; and
4) Post-transition regulatory issues, including channel sharing.
