Upcoming spectrum auctions

In case you have missed it, the FCC is about to auction off a fairly large chunk of spectrum. This article in Forbes does a good job in summarizing the auction and the business aspects of wireless in the past several years.

Do you think that the government should be concerned with the financial fortunes of the major carriers when deciding when and how much spectrum to auction? What services do you think will emerge? What is the prospect of secondary markets or secondary spectrum use as a result of these auctions?

Update: Om Malik reports that this spectrum will be going for less than previous spectrum ... something about supply and demand?
