It's been our hunch all along that Verizon would take all in the 700MHz spectrum auction, but analysts are now confirming our suspicions from the other day: Verizon is set to win the most hotly desired slice of airwaves in the country, which can be used for anything from an entirely new mobile broadband service to boosting their current data setup.

@Yoshi: They have a different number of outstanding shares... price doesn't tell you anything. VZ still being bought at a higher premium...

On a different note... what's VZ's incentive to buy the network if the FCC/Google has made it possible for any devices to use the spectrum? Are these open devices going to require paying VZ for access?
