The Broadcast Incentive Auction: Balancing Competing Goals in the Spectrum Incentive Auction

April 25, 2013

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is developing service and auction rules to transition broadcast spectrum to mobile use through a novel incentive auction. The auction must compensate television broadcasters at a level that will encourage them to relinquish substantial amounts of spectrum while ensuring enough auction revenue remains to fund the construction of a nationwide interoperable public safety network. The challenges presented by these competing goals will impact the implementation of service rules for the band and the auction design.
