FCC To Auction off the Future of the Internet on Dec. 8
You know it's funny... everything that grabs the headlines these days — the political gaffes, soundbites from congressional hearings, tweets that this politician or that politician made, statements that this pro athlete or that pro athlete posted on Twitter — 90% of it is empty air.
Totally useless, insignificant, out-of-context information that changes absolutely nothing.
We read about it, hear about it on the news, get riled up, react emotionally, and then the next day it starts all over again.
The net result is that we're lost in a quagmire of worthless data, with only anger and frustration to show for it.
All the while, the real news — the stuff that will make a difference in our lives tomorrow, the following week, and for the next 10, 20, or 50 years — just gets swept under the rug.
It's a sad state of affairs that this is what modern news has become: a sea of sensationalized, eye-grabbing yet substance-devoid content designed to pull us in and waste our time and emotional energy.
And that's probably one of the reasons why you read Wealth Daily. Because here, we step away from the empty air and give you what the mainstream outlets simply ignore: the news and information that matters.
In keeping with this mission, I'd like to take this opportunity to give you a piece of news that you likely didn't hear anywhere else, and yet will lead to major changes in all of our lives starting just a few short months from today.
The Biggest Day of Your Investment Life Is Nine Weeks Away
On December 8, the Federal Communications Commission will be holding an auction.
What's on the block? Bandwidth — specifically, chunks of the most important spectrum to go on the market in decades.
It's called C Band, and up until now, it's been reserved for military and government use.
Once the FCC auctions off 5,684 licenses on December 8, however, C Band will become the domain of major wireless carriers such as T-Mobile and AT&T.
This is important to you and me because, without the open availability of C Band to the civilian consumer market, 5G, the internet of things, smart cities, and everything else we've come to associate with the next generation of internet technology will simply not be possible.
In fact, even current 4G internet usage levels, which spiked dramatically when COVID-19 chained millions of Americans to their home computers and tablets, are already barely sufficient to carry current demand.
A true 5G internet network will require tens, even hundreds of billions of new internet-capable devices in places where they never existed.
I'm talking about new sensors at every street corner, inside the structural members of bridges and buildings, on every power pole, inside every new car, even inside people themselves. For this ecosystem to survive even one microsecond, C Band is absolutely vital.
When the switch flips in December, the world that comes afterward will not resemble everything we know and recognize today.
The News Has Failed You... Again
Now, as I said, the mainstream media doesn't cover this. Not because it's a huge secret or anything, it just doesn't carry the sensational value that, say, a politically charged quote from Lebron James or Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez might.
So it doesn't bother.
But to consumers awaiting the benefits of a 5G world, or to investors hoping to exploit one of the most significant catalysts the tech industry has ever encountered, this is definitely worthy of first-page billing.
As I mentioned earlier, some of the biggest names in the wireless game are positioning themselves to snatch up big pieces of the spectrum... but it's some of the smaller tech firms that stand to truly transform themselves in the environment that grows out of the December 8 auction.
One particular company that I've been following for the last several months could stand to gain the most of all.
This Arizona-based firm has patents on a brand new form of data storage which will be just as essential to the widespread implementation of 5G as C Band.
Unlike any form of computer memory that came before it, this new technology will allow for stable, long-term storage of information without an external power source.
Devices equipped with this new generation of memory will be able to function for years on end without the need for batteries, electrical wiring, or routine maintenance which, up until now, have been major hurdles to realizing the dream of universal 5G connectivity.
A David in a Crowd of Goliaths
This company, as of today, has a market capitalization of just $130 million. That's maybe a thousandth of its value if its patents get licensed to the manufacturers of the next generation of 5G devices.
The auction of December 8 will be the last piece of resistance holding it back from becoming a cornerstone of the 5G revolution.
I recently published a full report on this company for my readers.
Shares have risen almost 20% in just the last several weeks alone, and all indicators are that this is just the start.

Just remember this: The December 8 catalyst is only going to happen once... and so will this opportunity.
