Wireless Auction to End Today?

Posted by: Olga Kharif on March 10, 2008

It looks like the Federal Communications Commission’s 700 Mhz wireless auction might end today, or tomorrow at the latest. Bids have slowed down to a crawl, with total amount going up by a mere $66,000 in the latest round. Were the FCC to stop the auction, we could find out the winning bidders’ names as early as the end of this month.

The big question: Has Google won anything? Or has the company ducked out midway through the auction, letting incumbents Verizon and AT&T pick up some of the most valuable spectrum chunks?
