ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the attempt by the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to revamp the rules on the 700 megahertz (MHz) D Block proposal to attract commercial bidders in 2008. The move was reportedly preceded by the failure of the auction of 10MHz of 700 MHz commercial spectrum. Non-metropolitan public-safety agencies are said to be presented with the best chance to leverage a wireless broadband network through the shared-network plan. FCC Chairman Kevin Martin is said to be hoping to pass new D Block rules.
