The FCC voted to free up an additional 100MHz of wireless spectrum for unlicensed use in a move that will help alleviate congestion on Wi-Fi networks and pave the way for faster-speed service.
FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler says that new rules he is proposing for the upcoming TV broadcast spectrum auction will set aside a sliver of licenses for smaller wireless operators in an effort to promote competition.
Verizon Wireless says that it plans to sell spectrum in the A and B blocks of the 700MHz frequency band, but how valuable is that spectrum to other carriers rolling out 4G LTE anyway?
AT&T's threat to not participate in the upcoming auction could jeopardize the success of the auction, but it's unclear how serious its warning is as its arguments seem weak when scrutinized.
Verizon has been selling off some of its 700MHz spectrum licenses in the lower A block. And U.S. Cellular has agreed to buy some more.
The new rules for the complicated, but important auction set for late next year are a work of compromise that didn't fully satisfy big or small wireless carriers.
The wireless carrier will focus first on rural and suburban areas. "We've come a long way with this," says CTO Neville Ray.
