1710 - 1755 MHz Background

December 01, 2012


On February 16, 2007 the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) submitted its report “Commercial Spectrum Enhancement Act Report to Congress on Agency Plans For Spectrum Relocation Funds” to Congress requesting $1,008,552,502 for 1990 frequency assignments be transferred from the relocation fund. After 30 days, OMB made Advanced Wireless Services auction funds available to the agencies for relocation.

The update reflects a reduction in the total number of frequency assignments in the 1710-1755 MHz band from 147 to 76.
