The author reflects on the ruling of the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) on the 700 megahertz (MHz) band auction in the U.S. The FCC ruled that the conditions of open applications and open devices would be applied to a 22 MHz band. The open services and open network requirement was rejected. The FCC also set a minimum bid of $4.6B for this band. If the minimum bid was not reached, the conditions would be removed and bidding would be restarted.
