FCC to conduct 900 MHz. spectrum auction over objections of power utilities

From Telephony Online:
"A scheduled February auction of 900 MHz spectrum will proceed as planned, after the FCC Wireless Bureau on Friday refused a request of utilities-related entities to delay the bidding until after a decision is made about the future of the 800 MHz band. Filed by the Southern Communications and the United Telecom Council, the request asked the FCC to postpone the auction because many potential bidders could have their interest in the spectrum altered greatly by the outcome of the agency’s proceeding that could change the makeup within the 800 MHz band. To address interference issues in the public safety arena, the FCC is considering a proposal that would shuffle users within the 800 MHz band. Depending on the outcome of that proceeding--the first order of which is expected to be issued during the first quarter of 2004--the business plans for those entities wanting to bid on the 900 MHz spectrum could be altered, the petitioners argued."
