Spectrum auction

A Spectrum auction is a process whereby governments use an auction system to sell the rights to transmit signals over specific electromagnetic wavelengths.

Federal Communications Commission Auctions

In the United States, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) conducts auctions of licenses for electromagnetic spectrum. The FCC has been conducting competitive auctions since 1994 rather than assigning spectrum through comparative hearings (under which the specific merits of each applicant is litigated), or through lotteries. FCC spectrum auctions are open to any company or individual that is determined by the Commission to be a qualified bidder.
