The Federal Communications Commission denied a request by the Rural Wireless Association and NTCA: The Rural Broadband Association to suspend or slow the incentive spectrum auction in September while the organizations attend a pair of conferences.

"Suspending or reducing the bidding schedule for six full days could undermine our goal of promoting an efficient and successful auction process," said Margaret Wiener, chief of the auctions and spectrum access division of the Wireless Telecommunications Bureau, adding there needs to be a compelling reason to do so.
