2.5 GHz Auction to Start in July, Says FCC Chair


In remarks made to Mobile World Congress 2022 in Barcelona, FCC Chair Jessica Rosenworcel announced that Auction 108 for 2.5 GHz spectrum would be held sometime in July 2022. “I am excited to announce that the US will hold another mid-band spectrum auction. This July we’ll kick off our auction of the 2.5 GHz band,” said Rosenworcel. “This is the single largest swathe of continuous mid-band spectrum we have below 3 GHz.” The announcement follows recent revisions made by FCC staff to the Auction 108 inventory and proposed auction format, shifting towards a multiple-round clock format. Further public notices providing a specific Auction 108 schedule and final inventory and auction procedures are expected.
