by Colin Gibbs
The carrier, which is expected to be the dominant bidder, discussed the repacking process with FCC.
AT&T executives met with FCC officials last week to discuss the repacking process for next year's incentive auction. It's the latest indication the carrier intends to aggressively pursue TV broadcasters'600 MHz spectrum at auction.
In an FCC filing, AT&T said its SVP of federal regulatory, Joan Marsh, and three other representatives met with members of the commission's Incentive Auction Task Force, Wireless Bureau and Media Bureau last week. "The purpose of the meeting was to explore in more detail what an organized, efficient and expeditions broadcaster repacking process will entail," AT&T said in its filing.
