AU Docket No. 12-25
1. This Public Notice announces the availability of certain files that have been updated to
conform to decisions previously announced by the Wireless Telecommunications Bureau and Wireline
Competition Bureau (“Bureaus”). In the Auction 901 Procedures Public Notice, the Bureaus described
how we identified census blocks eligible for the Mobility Fund Phase I support to be offered in Auction
901.1 With the Auction 901 Procedures Public Notice, the Bureaus released Attachment A, a summary of
the final list of eligible census blocks, and we concurrently provided more detailed “Attachment A” files
in electronic format only.2 We have since found that we need to correct some of these files to accurately

2. The files for which we now announce updates are available via the link for “Attachment A
Files” at Specifically, the “All Eligible Census Blocks” file; the
“Biddable Items” file; and the state spreadsheet files for Maryland, Oklahoma, and Nevada have been
updated.3 Interested parties should use these files instead of previously-released versions.
3. Concurrent with the release of Auction 901 Procedures Public Notice, the Bureaus released

(“Auction 901 Procedures Public Notice”).
2 Subsequent to the release of the Auction 901 Procedures Public Notice, the Bureaus provided updates to some of
the Attachment A files in two public notices. See “Mobility Fund Phase I Auction; Additional Data Formats of
Eligible Census Blocks,” Public Notice, AU Docket No. 12-25, DA 12-721, at paras. 2-3 (rel. May 8, 2012)

(rel. June 15, 2012).
3 The county name of one of the census blocks in Maryland has been revised to remove an extra apostrophe. The
updated files reflect the correct inventory of 604 fewer eligible census blocks and 8 fewer biddable items in
Oklahoma than in the previous files. The updated files also reflect the correct inventory in Nevada of 21 more
census blocks than in the previous files and no change in the number of biddable items.
