At the end of day 2, after 6 more rounds of bidding. Metro PCS is still the big spender. no one has come close to touching its $375 million bid for Los Angeles. However it has lost day 1's bid for Houston. The war for Houston has heated up. Verizon outbid T-Mobile for the spectrum it was winning in Houston. So T-Mobile turned around and outbid Metro PCS for the other Houston lot. San Diego is moving up in the bid list - apparently Cricket (LEAP) wants San Diego pretty bad. Seattle is also heating up, though not nearly as hot since there are 3 lots there. T-Mobile currently is high bidder on two of the 3 lot. We'll continue to provide a daily summary. If you want to follow along play by play, the FCC has set up a great site to track the auction. Angeles would be a huge gain for metro. That's an absolutely huge urban area that would undoubtedly return the investment.
