ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the 700 megahertz (MHz) telecommunication spectrum in the U.S. According to the author, the spectrum is in the upper 700 MHz range, not the lower 700 MHz band where companies such as Qualcomm's MediaFLO already are deploying services. The spectrum's auction in 2007 are attracting others that will be affected by the outcome. Negotiations over 700 MHz rules were blamed for the U.S. Federal Communications Commission's action.
