ABSTRACT
The article reports on the adoption of new draft rules for the reauction of the 10 megahertz (MHz) D Block in the 700 MHz band by the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC). The new draft is in search of public/private affiliation for a shared network, but there has been numerous uncertainties raised by public-safety representatives. In early 2008, FCC attempted to auction D Block under regulations that would secure the shared network like coverage of the U.S. population and backup-power requirements, but no wireless operator had a qualifying bid.
