WTB Grants Waiver to Expand AWS-3 Tribal Land Bidding Credit Eligibility


The Wireless Telecommunications Bureau has granted Smith Bagley, Inc.’s petition to waive the definition of “federally recognized Tribal land” under the Federal Communications Commission rules.  This action will expand the definition to include additional areas within the Eastern Navajo Agency of the Navajo Nation, and allow any winning bidder in the AWS-3 Auction (Auction 97) to seek eligibility for Tribal lands bidding credits in those underserved areas of New Mexico.  The Order includes a list of newly eligible census blocks.
