The government have just announced that their will be a spectrum auction next year for the 2.3Ghz band.

This means that Woosh's ill-fated attempt to acquire WiMax spectrum through the backdoor from other licence holders has done nothing! The outcome of these actions could be very interesting..

I suspect that Woosh will be willing to pay big bikkies at these auctions, because their future depends on it. I can sense the investors preparing themselves for another cash injection about now.

At least they have brought forward the auction from 2010 so the lucky purchasers can start building us some nice WiMax networks earlier (before they find out the business case doesn't stack up).
