In these comments, RTG urges the FCC to adopt auction procedures that maximize participation and eligible area coverage in order to optimize the allocation of the $300M of Mobility Fund Phase I support. Actions toward this end include:

  • using only updated American Roamer data
  • expanding the list of TIGER road categories
  • adopting bidder-defined aggregation of eligible Census Blocks
  • adopting a single round bidding period of one week
  • limiting amounts of default payments that must be made available upfront
