Three weeks to apply for unassigned PCS spectrum
Parties interested in acquiring spectrum unassigned in the 2001 PCS spectrum auction have until December 8 to submit an expression of interest. It is after that date that Industry Canada will determine whether it will proceed with an auction of the 10 available licences or offer the licences on a first-come, first-served basis. The licences are for the most part in rural areas such as the Yukon and Northwest Territories and Northern Quebec where there are four licences available in each territory. There are also single licences up for grabs in Saskatchewan and QuebecTel area. As was the case in the auction, the licences are 5×5 MHz paired blocks.
