Election could delay UK's 4G auction

The UK’s anticipated 4G spectrum auction could be delayed until 2011 because of a likely change of government at a forthcoming general election, a spectrum broker says.
Kip Meek told ZD Net UK the election is one potential hurdle to the auction, which was originally scheduled for 2010, ipaccess.com reports.
Any delay could impact the UK’s plans to offer super-fast fixed-line broadband by 2017, a target cited in separate pledges made by the country’s two main political parties.
