Abstract

In this Perspective, we estimate the auction revenue potential of the AWS-3 spectrum if licensed without significant regulatory emcumbrances. Using data from two recent spectrum auctions, regression analysis is used to predict auction revenues. We estimate the 25 Mhz block of spectrum would sell for about $2.8 billion.
