FCC extends comment and reply deadlines for spectrum auction issues

By Dru Sefton

The FCC announced on Thursday that it has extended its deadline for comments on upcoming broadcast spectrum auctions. The original deadlines, Dec. 21 for comments and Feb. 19, 2013, for replies, are now set at Jan. 25 and March 26, 2013.

The National Association of Broadcasters and CITA — The Wireless Association both requested the extension, which the FCC decided “is warranted to provide commenters with sufficient time to prepare comments and reply comments that fully respond to the complex economic, engineering, and policy issues raised” in its Oct. 2 Notice of Proposed Rulemaking.
