Lower 700 MHz License Construction and Renewal Deadline Reminder

The deadline to meet the final construction requirement and renew certain Lower 700 MHz licenses (A Block, B Block, and C Block) is Thursday, June 13, 2019. By that date, a Lower 700 MHz A or B Block licensee must have constructed facilities to provide signal coverage and offer service to at least 70 percent of its license area, and a Lower 700 MHz C Block licensee must be providing “substantial service.” Failure to meet the construction requirement will result in the loss of unserved portions of the license area for Lower 700 MHz A or B Block licensees, or permanent forfeiture of the license for Lower 700 MHz C block licensees. Additionally, lower 700 MHz licensees must submit a renewal application by the June 13th license expiration date.
