Verizon Wireless has rebuffed a Bloomberg report that it is participating in an auction to acquire spectrum from WiMax provider Clearwire.

Bloomberg reported on Tuesday that Clearwire was in talks to sell some of its spectrum in a bid to raise the $5 billion it needs to continue operations. Bloomberg also reported that AT&T and Deustche Telekom are making bids for the spectrum.

anyone know

how this would benifit tmobile? what could they do with said spectrum, services wise and would the benifits outweight the cost?
How cheap can they get the spectrum for vs what other spectrum is out there.
Sprint and T-mobile have very, very little access to fiber-optic lines compared to AT&T and Verizon. That's why Clearwire uses microwave arrays to get their traffic from the cell site to the central hub (or "switch") which is directly connected to th...

So Bloomberg decided to lie to everyone?

By saying VZW is part of the auction? Who do they think they are, Lookout? Why would they do this?
When no one is giving any straight answers, you have to run with what you've got or get bested by the bloggers who will scoop the story first.

It's likely that all the had was a source saying Verizon, AT&T and T-mobile were invited to the classy me...
