The article reports on the outcome of the advanced wireless services (AWS) auction in the U.S. and on the controversy surrounding the new guidelines created by the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) for designated entities. The FCC has decided to extend designated entity license sale restrictions and deny incentives to designated entities that resell or lease more than 50 percent of their spectrum capacity. Designated entities accounted for a low percentage of the government's take in the AWS auction in 2006.
