Canada wireless auction is over; results expected in days -sources

TORONTO, Feb 18 (Reuters) – The Canadian government has
completed an auction of prized wireless spectrum and is poised
to reveal the results within days, several sources with
knowledge of the process said on Tuesday.

The 700 megahertz spectrum, which is valued for its ability
to carry a signal over long distances and to penetrate
buildings, will be used by Canada’s big wireless companies and
some smaller ones to build more powerful networks.
