Winners of the FCC Airwaves Auction

March 20, 2008

I’ve been following the FCC auction for a while now (exhibit AB, and C), especially because it appeared Google may have been positioning itself for some new service that had yet to be disclosed. Well, I was wrong… Verizon Wireless is the big winner in the airwaves auction. So it looks like the analysts interviewed by Bloomberg were right (duh!): Google gets the open airwaves they wanted while not having to commit tons resources to branch out as a wireless service provider + search engine.

Yawn.

 

P.S. 

Dear United States Government:

Please enjoy your extra $19 billion; please don’t spend it all in one place.
