700 MHz auction drags on

The 700 MHz auction is limping along with a just a handful of small bid increases on minor pieces of spectrum. It appears the C-Block portion is over as the bidding has stopped at $4.7 billion. And the D Block, the spectrum reserved for a private/public partnership for public safety, doesn't have any qualified bids. So far, the auction has a total of $19.4 billion in bids.

Now everyone is sitting on the edge of their seats wondering who walked away with most of the C Block spectrum. And the FCC is wondering what went wrong in the D-Block auction.
