AT&T, Verizon, other top providers to bid in 600 MHz incentive auction

The FCC's upcoming incentive auction of 600 MHz spectrum has attracted over 104 applicants, creating what Chairman Tom Wheeler hopes will result in a "spectrum extravaganza."   

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.
