FCC's 600 MHz incentive auction bids could create new opportunities for tower providers, installers

The FCC's much-anticipated 600 MHz incentive auction could potentially provide a wealth of business for tower providers and wireless network installers once the operators put the spectrum they purchase to use.

In its new 600 MHz incentive auction primer, FierceWireless looks at the implications of the upcoming auction and which wireless operators are going to bid on this spectrum. Among the named participants are Verizon (NYSE: VZ), AT&T (NYSE: T) and T-Mobile US (NYSE:TMUS). Meanwhile, Sprint (NYSE: S) said it won't take part in the auction, but FierceWireless reports that the wireless operator's parent company SoftBank has applied under a "doing business as" name.
