CBA Issues C-Band Value Analyses and Clearing Cost Estimates

Based on separate analyses from two respected economic and financial advisory firms, NERA and Evercore, the value of the 280 MHz that are to be auctioned in the U.S. this year ranges from $43 billion to $77 billion. In another filing, the CBA quantified the cost of clearing 300 MHz of C-band spectrum at $3.3 billion. The CBA issued these analyses and estimations in order to underscore the significant value of this U.S. spectrum that its members have operated for 40 years to the benefit of 120 million American households who receive movies, TV broadcasts and other content from leading companies such as Discovery, Disney, Fox, NBCUniversal, QVC, ViacomCBS and WarnerMedia, among others.
