1. The Auction 901 Data Files Public Notice announces the availability of certain files that have been updated to conform to decisions previously announced by the Wireless Telecommunications Bureau and Wireline Competition Bureau (Bureaus). In the Auction 901 Procedures Public Notice, 77 FR 32092, May 31, 2012, the Bureaus described how they identified census blocks eligible for the Mobility Fund Phase I support to be offered in Auction 901. With the Auction 901 Procedures Public Notice, the Bureaus released Attachment A, a summary of the final list of eligible census blocks, and they concurrently provided more detailed Attachment A files in electronic format only. Subsequent to the release of the Auction 901 Procedures Public Notice, the Bureaus provided updates to some of the Attachment A files in two public notices. The Bureaus have since found that they need to correct some of these files to accurately reflect the determinations made in the Auction 901 Procedures Public Notice. Accordingly, the Bureaus are releasing a new Attachment A to replace the one released with the Auction 901 Procedures Public Notice, and they are updating some of the corresponding Attachment A files.
2. The files for which the Bureaus now announce updates are available via the link for Attachment A Files at http://wireless.fcc.gov/auctions/901/. Specifically, the All Eligible Census Blocks file; the Biddable Items file; and the state spreadsheet files for Maryland, Oklahoma, and Nevada have been updated. Interested parties should use these files instead of previously-released versions.
3. Concurrent with the release of Auction 901 Procedures Public Notice, the Bureaus released an interactive map of the eligible census blocks. The map is a visual representation of data from the Attachment A files, which contain more information and generally more detail than is displayed on the map. The Bureaus subsequently released geographic information system (GIS) formats of the data shown in the interactive map. The interactive map and the related GIS data formats will be updated in the near future to match the corrections in the Attachment A files. Once updated, the link for the map and each of the GIS data links will be displayed with a notation of when they were updated.
