The FCC has released a list of all of the companies who have registered to bid in the auction of 700 MHz spectrum, scheduled for Jan 24. As expected, most of the major phone companies are bidding, as are scores of regional and local carriers and wireless companies. Google, as widely reported, is also on the list.
Advance/Newhouse, Bend Cable Communications, Bresnan Communications, Cable Montana and Cox Wireless are among the cable concerns who have filed. Also bidding is Vulcan Spectrum, a company controlled by Paul Allen, who also controls Charter Communications.
There are two lists that together provide a full roster of the bidders. The first list includes bidders who have completed their paperwork, and the second list includes those who have yet to complete the necessary documents.
