Re: The little auction that could?
$23,108,037,900 right now, seems like the bid spurt has slowed, for now at least.

Possibly "parked" bids to maintain eligibility...

Re: The little auction that could?
Hm, not sure about that. Remember that C2 blocks have major impairments (between 15% and 50%) while C1 blocks may have impairments in <15% range.

Eagle Pass, TX blocks are all C2. (looks that way).

So, still a mystery...

Interesting! If I had to guess I'd bet AT&T is making the running on that one. Particularly with 600MHz good line of sight cellsites will get you nice range with the low-band spectrum.

Re: The little auction that could?
Thanks for the link. I find it interesting to look at the detailed data: at https://auctiondata.fcc.gov/public/projects/1000/reports/product_status-stage1.

Sort by aggregate demand, for example. While it's easy to understand the attractiveness of major urba markets (Ney York, Chicago, SF...), what's so special about Eagle Pass, TX? Not being from the US, I may be missing something here. Any good explanation?

The little auction that could?
So can this auction get up to $86.4B. Remember the last one topped $45B but taht was the largest spectrum auction ever in the US.
