Speaking of the FCC’s incentive auctions, John Eggerton of Broadcasting & Cable reports the Commission’s Chairman is already working hard to get as many players involved as possible:
FCC chairman Julius Genachowski Friday urged broad participation in the FCC’s upcoming spectrum incentive auctions, a draft framework for which he is circulating among the other commissioners for their input and vote Sept. 28, if not sooner.
“Even as the Commission draws on the expertise of the world’s leading economists, auction design experts, and engineers, our ability to maximize the opportunities of spectrum will depend on the active engagement of the public and all stakeholders,” he said in a statement Friday. “I urge broad participation by all.”
Genachowski’s full remarks are available at the FCC website (PDF).
