MetroPCS is latest addition to auction

Yesterday, we found out that Leap would be entering the 700 MHz fray. Today, the Dallas Morning News reports that rival MetroPCS will do the same. Just like their competitor, Metro will be bidding for smaller slivers of the spectrum, rather than on the 22 megahertz that’s coveted by Verizon, AT&T, and Google. Dallas Morning News also mentions that Leap and Metro cannot talk about mergers until after the auction, pursuant to anti-collusion rules. We’re not sure they’d want to speak on that topic, anyway.
