Lawmakers Urge FCC to Delay Airspace Vote

Dec 12, 2008  •  Post A Comment

Some lawmakers are expected to speak out against the FCC’s upcoming vote on the auction of radio spectrum airspace, Reuters reports. The proposed action, which includes free broadband as a requirement, is facing dissent from cell phone companies, such as T-Mobile, which says the space available for auction will disrupt its own $4.2 billion space, the news service says. Sen. Jay Rockefeller, D-W.Va., is expected to push for a delay in order to allow the FCC to focus on February’s analog shutoff.
