Proposed Agency Information Collection Activities; Comment Request, 44078-44079 [2020-15402]

Download as PDF jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES 44078 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 140 / Tuesday, July 21, 2020 / Notices Order will result in two types of harm: (1) Scarcity of satellite capacity for PSSI’s occasional use due to the repurposing of the lower portion of the C-band; and (2) potential interference and equipment damage from wireless broadband service in the repurposed spectrum. They argue that the Commission violated a statutory prohibition against auctioning spectrum ‘‘used for the provision of international or global satellite communications services,’’ exceeded its license modification authority under section 316 of the Communications Act, and did not provide notice that it would modify PSSI’s right to transmit radio communications in the 5.925–6.425 GHz band. The Commission denies the Stay Request. First, PSSI has not shown that it will suffer irreparable harm. The harm that PSSI alleges is not imminent, is conjectural, and consists of economic injuries that are not severe enough to be cognizable as irreparable harm. Second, PSSI has not shown a likelihood of success on the merits. The Commission addressed PSSI’s principal arguments at length in the 3.7 GHz Report and Order. The Stay Request does not persuade the Commission that the PSSI’s arguments are likely to succeed in court any more than they did before the agency. Third, PSSI has not shown that the equities favor a stay. PSSI has not met its burden of showing that the public interest militates in favor of a stay and that others would not be harmed by a stay. Moreover, PSSI has not shown that the public interest would favor grant of the stay. The Commission’s actions to repurpose the C-band are an indispensable element of its overall strategy of promoting the deployment of fifth generation (5G) wireless services, with millions of jobs, and billions of dollars in economic growth and other public benefits, at stake. Grant of a stay pending judicial review would significantly delay the auction and transition process and harm multiple stakeholders, including prospective bidders and the diverse incumbents involved in the transition process. The cost of such delay and disruption could be enormous. In addition to the public interest harms, grant of a stay would undercut the specific goal of U.S. leadership in 5G and the general goals of the auction program. Accordingly, we conclude that a stay of the Order and Order and Proposed Modification Pending Judicial Review is not warranted.
