The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has started the auction of spectrum in the 3.45 GHz band. Auction 110 will make available 100 MHz of contiguous mid-band spectrum for commercial use this year. The frequencies will be used for 5G mobile services. 

Bidding in the first phase of the auction, the clock phase, started on 5 October at 10 am (Eastern). The FCC noted that by law, auction proceeds must cover 110 percent of the expected sharing and relocation costs for federal users currently operating in the band. The US Department of Commerce’s National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) put this amount at over USD 14.7 billion.

The FCC adopted flexible use service rules for the 3.45 GHz band in March and established procedures for Auction 110 in June. License winners will operate within a cooperative sharing framework so that the spectrum can be used by different service providers, while also ensuring that federal services are protected from harmful interference when they use the band.
