Please come and buy the 700mhz WiMax band in Denmark, and deploy it cheaply using the FON flowerbox model.
Would it be ideal if the citizens of this country emailed Mr. Martin as a way to show their preference in these matters?
Does this mean that Google would not extend the other 2 kinds of openness that they lobbied for and did not win?
PLEASE just buy the spectrum!! I'll switch in a heartbeat!!! even tho I like my carrier( not verizon i hate those greedy ... for trying to take away my choices as a consumer)
Down with Verizon! Google PLEASE buy the spectrum. Open is the way to go!
I applaud Google for its actions here; I think it's clearly on the right side of this issue. But the positions it's taking in other cases may be in tension with its stance here; see, e.g.,: http://www.concurringopinions.com/archives/2007/09/google_is_not_a.html
I hope Google has true intentions to buy this spectrum and aren't simply acting the part to spur competition among the others. We need someone like Google to step up to the plate and end the wireless monopoly. Ma Bell is back together, Verizon is worse then ever. Save us Google ;)
Google consistently has ignored patriotic American holidays such as Memorial Day and Veteran's Day, but today it acknowledged an accomplishment of the communist Soviet Union, which launched the Sputnik space satellite 50 years ago.The Internet giant, known for its widely used search engine, regularly modifies its logo to commemorate holidays, historical events and figures.But as WND reported, for the ninth year in a row, Google declined to mark Memorial Day – something the company has done for the Chinese New Year, Valentine's Day, Halloween and other observances.
I will pay a LOT of money just to have Google as my cell phone carrier. I love your products and think you are perfect for this task! Please buy the ENTIRE spectrum.

GOOGLE-Please buy the spectrum. Its our only hope for an open environment, while you are at it, please try and get congress to understand the importance of a National Broadband policy. If congress wants economic growth and is at all interested in staying true to the entrepenurial spirit that made this country great, then we need better broadband.UNLOCK COMMUNICATIONS..
Dominate google, the people that make you a giant need you.
Chris - good point. However, Google, you should be organizing US. Why don't you solicit our e-support a la moveon.org? Or can we volunteer to do this for / with you?
Thanks google, VZ has a habit of locking down devices and getting rid of 90% of the features.IS google trying to do that to get their apps on to verizion phones? It would be good either way.
"I hope Google has true intentions to buy this spectrum and aren't simply acting the part to spur competition among the others. We need someone like Google to step up to the plate and end the wireless monopoly. Ma Bell is back together, Verizon is worse then ever. Save us Google ;)"Corporations are a delicate balance between what's right for investors, and what's right for customers. Google is one of those rare companies that seems to give priority to customers. What ever their true motive (whether it's some idealistic thing like "free access!", or forcing competition), Google convincing the FCC to keep the spectrum open would inevitably be beneficial for customers. :)"Google consistently has ignored patriotic American holidays such as Memorial Day and Veteran's Day, but today it acknowledged an accomplishment of the communist Soviet Union, which launched the Sputnik space satellite 50 years ago."Why do you have to make it a nationalistic issue? Google is celebrating the event that kickstarted the space race that gave us most of the tech we enjoy today. That's more important than any one country's holidays.
The Auction rules are now and the C block has a reserve of $4,637,854,000.This is quite a chunk of change.Does Google accepts donations on Paypal?F.
Tommorrow I'll have a multi-part series on Google's Mobile Strategy, which will include spectrum, the G-phone, and timeframses at GaGaGooogle.com
