The Best Laid Plans: Canadian Wireless Auction

Ohh, I wonder what's keeping the folks at the CRTC up at night. Could it have anything to do with the fact that their darling Spectrum Auction has now raised upwards of $4B? Exciting stuff, if you don't take into account that the estimates were basically half that amount.

Now the CRTC has got to be realizing that they've created a monster, instead of trying to inject competition into Canada's wireless industry.
The poor buggers who actually win the different various frequencies around the country are going to be up to their eyeballs in debt. How's that for bringing down the cost of wireless services?
What could have been done differently?
