Prof. Stuart Benjamin, the FCC’s first Distinguished Scholar, will discuss “Incentive Auctions & Spectrum Secondary Markets: Complements or Substitutes?”
Key members from the academic, industry, and policymaking communities will discuss the ways in which incentive auctions and secondary markets for spectrum are complementary approaches to addressing the ever increasing demand for spectrum. The discussants will also address forthcoming research and analysis that explores this relationship.
With the Administration, Congress, and the FCC all focused on how to establish a sustainable pipeline of more spectrum to support mobile broadband, this conversation is a timely and critical addition to the policy discussions occurring at all levels of the federal government.
