On February 16, 2007 the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) submitted its report “Commercial Spectrum Enhancement Act Report to Congress on Agency Plans For Spectrum Relocation Funds” to Congress requesting $1,008,552,502 for 1990 frequency assignments be transferred from the relocation fund. After 30 days, OMB made Advanced Wireless Services auction funds available to the agencies for relocation.

The update reflects a reduction in the total number of frequency assignments in the 1710-1755 MHz band from 76 to 34.
