Spectrum Hearing—Debate Falls Along Party Lines

Though almost everyone supports the use of unlicensed spectrum for mobile broadband, Republicans and Democrats on the House Commerce subcommittee differed on ways to unleash the unlicensed band at a hearing Wed, which aims to ensure the FCC’s “on track” with its incentive auction efforts. The GOP is concerned the auction’s structured in a way that could leave cash behind, while Dems countered that there would be less unlicensed spectrum if the size of the bands were reduced. More details on the hearing here.

Verizon and Redbox will launch their streaming video service in beta later this month. Here is what’s offered by the service.
 
The FCC Media Bureau granted a temporary waiver to municipal cable system South Georgia Governmental Services Authority to the CALM Act, which took effect today and requires digital TV broadcasters, cable operators and satellite providers to ensure that commercials they transmit to viewers aren’t too loud.
 
As expected, the FCC approved orders freeing up DISH’s Mobile Satellite Service spectrum for terrestrial mobile broadband use and okaying the auction of the adjacent H Block spectrum.
