Verizon Wins Key FCC Auctions

V

Cell TowerI just found out that Verizon has won the coveted C-Block spectrum. There has been a lot of speculation about who had won the FCC specified, open spectrum with Verizon leading the pack with respect to the rumors. Google is not in the business of managing mobile networks and most likely entered the auction to insure the spectrum is kept open and insure that Android is a success.

This could be a bad thing as Verizon could use their lawyers to postpone the release of this open spectrum arguing that the model would hurt their business. (Of course a smart lawyer/judge would indicate that they knew that before they purchased the spectrum and it could take three years to get to that point.)

We will see what happens . . .
