Commission Seeks Additional Competitive Bidding Input


The Federal Communications Commission (FCC or Commission) has adopted a Public Notice seeking further comment in its Competitive Bidding/Designated Entity proceeding. The Commission is seeking comment on various industry proposals, regarding how it can meet its statutory obligation to ensure that small businesses, rural telephone companies, and businesses owned by members of minority groups and women (collectively, “designated entities” or “DEs”) have an opportunity to participate in the provision of spectrum-based services, while at the same time ensuring that there are adequate safeguards to protect against unjust enrichment to ineligible entities. Comments will be due 21 days after Federal Register publication of the Public Notice, which has not yet occurred. Reply comments will be due 7 days later.
