Apparently this has gone unnoticed, since I haven't seen it on any of the "usual suspect" blogs: In Germany, the frequencies in the 3.5 GHz have been auctioned during the last days. Clearwire (US) has pulled it off again, the other successful bidders are Inquam Broadband, the Deutsche Breitbanddienste DBS (Germany) ("German Broadband Services"), Televersa Online (Germany) and MGM Productions (Italy). However, the only bidders with national coverage are Clearwire, Inquam and DBS. Results can be seen from the RSS feed, or from the press release (in German, of course, who would like to know the results in English anyhow???)
The following blocks were up for sale:
Clearwire bought licenses the block A frequencies for all 28 regions, and so did Inquam for the block B frequencies. DBS bougth all frequencies of the block C, except for region, where the block D frequencies were purchased. Televersa bought the block D frequencies in regions 25 and 28, MGM the block D frequencies in the region 27. Where these regions are can be seen from p. 4 onward in the decision by the Bundestnetzagentur, the German regulator, to put the 3.5 GHz frequencies up for auction (pdf). The frequencies were sold for a total of 56 Mio. Euro.
