Dibya Sarkar wrote recently on the topic of Google unique approach to biding on FCC spectrum.
Google appears set to bid for the upcoming release of spectrum to protect for the average consumer. In other words, to keep it out of the hands of traditional telecoms. I find this interesting since they have placed conditions on how the government should handle the spectrum.
As usual, I applaud anyone who stands up for what they believe and/or puts their money where their mouth is.... And Google has most certainly put around $4-5billion dollars where their opinion is. But, can Google really put that much investment out for an open network in the same week that Wall Street starts asking harder questions about their business model?
It could either be the best land grab since Jefferson bought Louisiana or it could be beachfront property in Arizona.... :)
