Google ‘might’ consider wireless spectrum bid

25 Sep 2007

British broadsheet The Guardian has reported that Google could be mulling a bid for part of the UK’s 900MHz wireless frequency spectrum that will be auctioned off by the telecoms regulator in 2009. Ofcom is planning to take back a slice of the 900MHz band from Vodafone and O2 in order to re-purpose the spectrum for 3G use. Google is also widely believed to be considering bidding on the forthcoming US 700MHz spectrum auction.
