Until someone agrees to buy the spectrum, there is no need to move the 700 allocations and no one to pay for it either.
At the moment true however the winner of the block could make the point that the current systems in that block are not permanently licensed and could get out of having to compensate systems operating in that range using this approach.

The other possibility is the commission ends up cancelling all temporary authorizations in that range. This could cost some early 700 MHz adoptors money over the long term.

It is possible that the costs sprint/nextel is incurring for the 800 MHz rebanding is making potentional bidders think twice about it.

Not sure how this impacts your discussion, guys. This was on the front page of RR this morning. Curious to get your input on what it means for Colorado.
