Spectrum Scramble

5:30 AM -- It looks like 120 MHz of prime spectrum, due to be freed up as British analog TV is switched off during the next few years, will be auctioned off by U.K. regulator Ofcom .

The Times reports that only part of the spectrum will be reserved for the delivery of over-the-air high definition (HD) TV signals, while the remainder will be up for grabs to the highest bidders -- with broadcasters, mobile operators, and online giants such as Google (Nasdaq: GOOG) identified as the most interested parties.

Read the full story Ofcom set to auction off prime spectrum on the newspaper's Website.
