Google 'still very interested' in 700MHz spectrum auction

Just in case you had any suspicion that Google may retract its interest in bidding for the 700MHz spectrum after the rules neglected to afford the winner wholesaling rights, Chris Sacca has intervened to clear things up. According to the search giant's head of special initiatives, the firm is "still very interested in the auction" despite not getting all of the rules for the spectrum sale set in its favor. Of course, the FCC did choose to approve the whole "open access" bit, and while Mr. Sacca declined to elaborate in order to keep details of Google's strategy on the DL, it seems safe to say that it will indeed be busting out the checkbook come auction time.
