Wireless Network Next On Google Hit List
Google wants its own wireless network and is prepared to spend billions doing so by participating the US Government’s January auction of wireless spectrum in the 700 megahertz (MHz) band.
A reserve of US$4.6b has been set for the ‘spectrum’, which is coming onto the market as part of the nationally mandated US transition to digital television.
Announcing its intention to bid, Google characterised itself as a consumer champion.
"Consumers deserve more competition and innovation than they have in today's wireless world,” said Eric Schmidt, Google’s Chairman and CEO.
Schmidt sportingly added: “No matter which bidder ultimately prevails, the real winners of this auction are American consumers who likely will see more choices than ever before in how they access the Internet."
