Statement of FCC Chairman William E. Kennard
Regarding the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking for the C and F Block Auction

The Internet is quickly migrating out of the PC and into a vast array of inexpensive handheld devices. The C block reauction is vitally important because it will pump previously fallow spectrum into the marketplace to promote this migration.

The proposals presented today are carefully balanced to maximize the opportunity for both large and small entrepreneurs to participate in this great migration and provide these valuable new services to the public.
