  • Wind Mobile may win spectrum at bargain price in Canadian auction

    Small Canadian wireless operator Wind Mobile might have snagged valuable spectrum in an airwaves auction this week at a bargain-basement price, an industry analyst said on Thursday after a report that a rival bidder may have dropped out.
