The United States also began auctioning 5G spectrum in the mid-band

Mid-band airwaves are pretty important in any part of the world when it comes to offering 5SG services. The mod-band spectrum allows telcos to deliver decent coverage and speeds with 5G. In simple words, the mid-band spectrum is the sweet spot for 5G airwaves that any telco can get today. In India, the 5G spectrum auction is already going on, and today, bidding is the fifth day. But on Friday, even the United States (US) kicked off its 5G spectrum auction for the mid-band airwaves. The US Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is conducting this spectrum auction to boost the presence of 5G in the country.

FCC Focusing on Rural Areas with this Spectrum Auction

According to a Reuters report, this spectrum auction will have 8000 county-based licenses in the 2.5 GHz spectrum band. Most of the airwaves for this auction are for rural parts of the country. FCC wants to ensure that the coverage gap with 5G can be reduced as fast as possible. It is worth noting that in 2021, Congress approved $42.5 billion for Commerce Department grants to expand physical broadband deployment in backward places of the country where high-speed internet access is missing. 

With 5G networks in rural areas, the digital economy will be accessible to everyone in the country in the same way.
