+ - Google Wants to Play in 700MHz Band

Submitted by

scubacuda writes "The FCC's Wireless Telecommunications Bureau is soliciting feedback on Google's proposal for the 700 MHz band spectrum (Word ver), which currently is occupied by broadcasters in TV channels 52-69 and is being made available for wireless services. Google wants (a) the band to allow licensees to utilize "dynamic auction mechanisms", such as real-time auctions and per-device registration fees; (b) to "posit at least whether it would be in the public interest to mandate for some, or even all, of the commercial spectrum to be auctioned in the 700 MHz bands"; and (c) the unpaired 6 megahertz E Block (722-728 MHz) in the current lower 700 MHz band plan to be designated, "primarily or exclusively, for the deployment of broadband communications platforms." (More on the fight for the 700 MHz band here and )"
