The Federal Communications Commission today rescheduled a spectrum auction that was originally planned to begin January 14. The new date for the auction has been pushed eight days to January 22. The FCC plans to license spectrum in the H Block, which includes the 1915-1920MHz and 1995-2000MHz bands. Companies interested in participating in the auction will need to apply by November 15. This auction is expected to draw interest from Sprint and Dish Networks, which own spectrum that abuts the H block, among others. The FCC was forced to revise the auction start date due to the partial government shutdown, which interrupted the FCC’s operations.
