ACTING FCC CHAIRWOMAN CLYBURN STATEMENT ON SCHEDULING OF H BLOCK
SPECTRUM AUCTION FOR JANUARY 14, 2014"Today the Commission announced that the PCS H block auction will be held on January 14, 2014, and
set a reserve price of $1.56 billion. I am pleased that the FCC is moving expeditiously to implement
Congress's direction to auction this spectrum, and that we are doing so in a way that ensures substantial
revenues will flow to FirstNet. This will be the first major spectrum auction since 2008, and will help
close the spectrum gap as well as contributing to the goal of making mobile broadband available to our
nation's first responders."
