Auction Day 18: MTS Allstream may be nearing the end of the road

It appears as though MTS Allstream has reached price exhaustion for the 10 MHz D-band set aside licences covering Winnipeg and Brandon as the company relinquished 24 eligibility points yesterday, enough to cover those two properties. MTS used its final waiver in Round 90, leaving the company without any flexibility for the remainder of the auction. And the very next round, the Manitoba-based provider gave up 24 eligibility points the exact amount needed to bid on the tier three licences for Winnipeg and Brandon in either the 10 MHz D-band or E-band. Those 24 points were also needed to bid on the 10 MHz C-band set-aside licence covering all of Manitoba.
