Canada to reveal wireless spectrum auction results on Wednesday

TORONTO, Feb 18 (Reuters) – The Canadian government
confirmed on Tuesday that it has completed an auction of prized
wireless spectrum and will reveal those results on Wednesday.

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 mobile networks.
