(700MHz Spectrum) Let the Auctioning Begin!

Well, it's time for what we've all been waiting for. the 700MHz spectrum bidding will commence tomorrow. The top players in in this auction are no other than Google and Verizon themselves. Rumors of Google walking away from the auction empty-handed have been spreading like smallpox due to it pretty much already getting those open-access provisions it wanted.
My hope is that Google wins the auction, takes the spectrum and starts a wireless service, using advertisements as a paying method for consumers so consumers don't have to spend a pretty penny on cellular service ever. Everyone's happy! If you don't want those silly little ads on your phone when you turn it on, you can always pay using a different carrier (2-yr contract or pre-paid service).
