Finally, something to watch on UHF


— 8:22 PM on February 29, 2000

The FCC is going to re-auction off the frequency allocation that covers UHF TV channels 60-69. The FCC is expected to rake in a figure in the billions from the auctions. It seems the FCC realizes the scarce resources of the airwaves could be better put to use for high-speed Internet services. Don't get too excited yet, as the frequencies wouldn't be put to use until the TV broadcasters switch to lower frequency digital systems, the rollout for which could take until 2006.
