$19.8 billion airwaves auction may mean better cell service
The third-largest mobile service provider in the USA spent $8 billion on its winnings, which amounted to 45 percent of the block of spectrum.
T-Mobile has made good on its promise to be the big victor in the 600Mhz low-band spectrum auction spending almost $8 billion to grab what the operator says is 45% of the total TV spectrum on offer.
The auction's second biggest victor is Dish, which spent $6.2 billion and acquired just over 480 wireless licenses. Dish spent a painful $6.2 billion on licenses, and Comcast spend $1.7 billion.

The first group of stations to move channels is scheduled for November 30, 2018.
