The Wireless Telecommunications Bureau (WTB) develops and executes policies and procedures for fast, fair licensing of all wireless services, from fixed microwave links to amateur radio to mobile broadband services. We oversee nearly two million licenses, conduct auctions to award services licenses, and manage the tower registration process. We also produce an annual assessment of the wireless industry -- the Mobile Wireless Competition Report -- and manage interactive web tools such as the Spectrum Dashboard, which deliver to the public key information on wireless services in a simple, transparent fashion.
The Bureau is comprised of the following:
- Office of the Bureau Chief
- Auctions and Spectrum Access Division
- Broadband Division
- Mobility Division
- Competition and Infrastructure Policy Division
- Technologies, Systems and Innovation Division
