First week of bidding in 2300/3500 MHz auction: recap
Industry Canada’s 2300/3500 MHz spectrum auction kicked off one week ago with more action than anticipated. By mid-week several of the bidders’ strategies were becoming apparent. Telus Communications Inc., previously thought to be going after a swath of licences across the country, unveiled a well-hidden strategy of seeking only about a dozen licences in Quebec. Bell Canada and Rogers Wireless Inc. have blanketed the country with bids.
