The Business: well if you are Vodafone, you should be mighty pissed. You spent billions of dollars on acquiring 3G spectrum, built out a plan that entails building a walled garden of really expensive applications, and just when you were ready to take it in…. boom here comes news that there will be a second round of 3G licence auctions this Christmas to bring more competition to the UK market. “According to Ofcom, the chunk of spectrum being auctioned will be larger than that offered in the original sale and could be used for other wireless technologies as well as 3G,” the report says. Bidders could include British Telecom.
