SPOTLIGHT: More top stories of 2007

  • Google decided to bid in 700 Mhz auction coming up next month, while telcos fought the FCC's auction rules. Verizon was the most vocal in opposing the FCC rules.
  • Former Qwest CEO Joe Nacchio was found guilty on 19 counts of insider trading, and has spent the intervening months in and out of court. Read this story in Telephony.
