Globalive Communications and Rich Telecom, still in the hunt for licences, are the two companies holding up the auction.The Yak Communications owner was able to push SaskTel off the Far North property on Wednesday, but the result was the Crown corp's move into Atlantic Canada. Globalive, in turn responded with bids on the D-band Moose Jaw licence, which the company ultimately gained control of yesterday.Late in the day, Globalive executed two withdrawals: the D-band licence in Eastern New Brunswick and the 20 MHz A-band in Huntsville ON. In Wednesday's last round, the company then bid on the 10 MHz C-band licence for New Brunswick, demonstrating its desire to maintain blanket coverage over Atlantic Canada. Globalive also bid on the E-band 10 MHz Cobourg ON licence after withdrawing from the Huntsville property. It's unclear why the company would bid there because it already controls a 10 MHz Cobourg licence.Rich Telecom isn't giving up on getting spectrum in the West as the company as switched from Red Deer to Thompson/Cariboo to Prince George in the last few days. After bidding against Data & Audio-Visual Enterprises Wireless (DAVE) for Red Deer, Rich Telecom has been bidding against Shaw Communications for the two BC properties.Celluworld, which was vying for control of the Pembroke ON D-band licence against Globalive, had shifted its focus to the Cornwall property. The strategy appears to have paid off for the company as it won standing high bidder status in Round 224.With new bids remaining in the single digits and for the most part below five, the auction could close at any time. But as recent history shows, this auction just keeps on going.
