FCC offers spectrum help to small businesses

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has adopted an order that aims to help small businesses participate in spectrum auctions and the wireless marketplace. These policies are commonly known as the "designated entity rules". "The Report and Order adopts common sense reforms to ensure that eligible small businesses and rural service providers are the true recipients of bidding credits," says the FCC. "In addition, the Order provides greater flexibility to smaller companies and rural service providers to build wireless businesses that can spur additional investment in, and bring greater choice to, consumers and businesses across the country. the Commission is taking steps to provide small businesses – including enterprises owned by women and minorities – with a better on-ramp into the wireless industry, to increase the participation of rural service providers in future auctions and to eliminate outdated rules that no longer reflect the developments in today's wireless marketplace."
