Google to Bid for Mobile Airwaves

By Reuters -  |  Posted 11-30-2007

Google said on Friday it will bid for coveted mobile airwaves in a move that could pit the Web search leader against U.S. wireless service providers.

The Silicon Valley-based company said it will submit a formal application with the U.S. Federal Communications Commission on Monday.

Google's application to bid for the 700-megahertz wireless spectrum does not include any partners.
