Pursuant to a legislative requirement, GAO reviewed the Federal Communication Commission's (FCC) new rule on facilitating the future development of paging systems, the implementation of Section 309(j) of the Communications Act, and competitive bidding. GAO noted that: (1) the final rule would govern the geographic area licensing of common carrier paging and exclusive 929 MegaHertz private carrier paging and the competitive bidding procedures for auctioning mutually exclusive applications for these licenses; (2) FCC states that the rule is necessary to promote competition and efficient licensing in paging services; and (3) FCC complied with applicable requirements in promulgating the rule.
