• On October 17, 2011, the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) submitted a Second Interim Progress Report pursuant to the Presidential Memorandum issued on June 28, 2010, directing the Department of Commerce (DOC) and FCC to identify and make available 500 megahertz of spectrum over the next ten years for wireless broadband. The Second Interim Progress report summarizes NTIA’s activities from April 1, 2011, the date of the First Interim Progress report, through September 30, 2011. The “key activity” during this period has been the evaluation of the 1755-1850 MHz spectrum band, and the agencies promised to summarize the results of the evaluation soon.
