Ajit Pai wants to auction more spectrum for 5G


The FCC may open another spectrum band for mobile operators with 5G services.

The United States Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is about to decide whether to auction spectrum in the 2.5GHz band to use 5G services. The July 10 meeting is part of the Facilitate the United States Superiority program in 5G technology (which in English is known as 5G Fast), said Tuesday, June 18, Ajit Pai, president of the FCC.

The 5G network, already opened in the United States by Verizon, by AT&T and by Sprint, is the new generation network used by smart phones to offer faster transmission speeds as well as greater capacity. The radio spectrum, the radio waves, make the wireless system work and when auctioning spectrum in various frequency bands, the capacity and speeds will continue to increase.

Pai rated the middle band spectrum as "central" for the 5G Fast strategy, as it advanced the nation's leadership in 5G. He also said that the band has been almost unused so far, due to "arcane rules."

"On July 10, the commission will vote on an order to modernize an obsolete regulatory regime for the 2.5GHz band," Pai said in a blog post emailed to CNET on Tuesday. "The new framework … also provides opportunities for tribal and other nations to gain access to the unused 2.5GHz spectrum."

During the July 10 meeting, the FCC will also vote on the terms, procedures and conditions of its next auction on December 10 in the 37GHz, 39GHz and 47GHz bands.

At the end of last month, the FCC announced an increase of US $ 2,000 million in its gross bids in its second spectrum auction for 5G, by selling a group of high millimeter wave bandwidth (mmWave) in the 24GHz band.

Of the 2,909 licenses on offer, 2,904 were granted on May 28. Licenses mean that operators can launch mobile services on multiple frequencies, improving latency, speeds and capacity.

The first 5G spectrum auction that ended in January increased the collection of the FCC to US $ 702,572,410 in gross tenders, granting 2,965 of the 3,072 licenses offered in the 28GHz mmWave frequency band after the auction opened in November.
