US tops $80bn in record 5G spectrum auction
Auction 107 will raise $80.9bn (€67bn) for 280MHz in the 3.7-3.98 GHz C-band for 5G spectrum in the US

“Over the past few years, the FCC has made the tough calls needed to secure US leadership in 5G,” said commissioner Brendan Carr in a separate statement. “Chairman Pai deserves credit for freeing up the airwaves needed to power high-speed Internet services.  The close of the C-Band auction today further ensures that the strongest 5G platform in the world will be built here in the US, and the results make clear that we made the right decision to move forward.”

Winning bidders will now have the opportunity to bid for frequency-specific licenses in the assignment phase of Auction 107.  The FCC will release a public notice soon announcing further details regarding the assignment phase, including the date and time when bidding in the assignment phase will start.
