Canada’s Wireless Spectrum Auction

Similar to our friends down south, Canada recently just completed it’s wireless spectrum auction.  A major difference I found is that the Canadian Government restricted the big three players (Rogers, Telus and Bell Mobility) to only bid 40% of the spectrum block to allow new players in the field.  Now that it’s complete the Canadian government has raised $4.25billion and we now have a few more players in the field.  With more competition the state of the wireless industry in Canada can only get better. The recent data price drops are a good start!  Check out WirelessNorth.ca who has been covering the auction since it was announced and here for the final results.
