Cell Phone Spectrum Auction…Google is in.

UPDATE from my prior post on Nov 16, 2007 on Google’s google-logo.jpg cell phone ambitions:

So 214 bidders have been approved for the forthcoming 700 MHz spectrum auction, which starts on Jan. 24. The big bidders include AT&T, Verizon and Google. These bidders will go after 1,200 licenses.

The bidding will conclude on March 24; down payments will be due by April 11. A third of the spectrum is subject to “open access” rules — the winner will have to allow access to the spectrum to any device or application. This part of the spectrum carries a reserve price tag of $4.6 billion.


Much thanks to the edit staff at GigaOm for this info. My guess for a winner is still Google -wish they had odds for this in Vegas!
