FCC Announces New Spectrum Clearing Target

The Incentive Auction Task Force and the Wireless Telecommunications Bureau announce the 114 MHz spectrum clearing target that has been set by the Auction System’s optimization procedure for the Stage 2 of the incentive auction. Under the band plan associated with this spectrum clearing target, 90 megahertz, or 9 paired blocks, of licensed spectrum will be offered in the forward auction on a near-nationwide basis. This corresponds to spectrum now occupied by TV Channels 32 and above.

Bidding in the clock rounds of Stage 2 of Auction 1001 (Reverse Auction) will begin on Tuesday, September 13, 2016.
