FCC Officially Gives Dish Networks H Block Spectrum

Posted by at 11:30 am on April 30, 2014

The Federal Communications Commission has handed over 176 spectrum licenses to Dish Networks for the airwaves it won at auction earlier this year.

Total bids for the auction reached $1.564 billion, which was the reserve price set by the FCC. At stake was the H Block of the PCS band, which covers a 10MHz channel: 1915-1920MHz for the uplink and 1995-2000MHz for the downlink. An entity called American H Block Wireless – owned by Dish Networks – won all the licenses.

Dish Networks owns spectrum adjacent to the latter of these two blocks and plans to use it for a wireless network of its own.
