DISH Network, as expected, won licenses to wireless U.S. frequencies in 176 markets in a sweep at the recently ended Federal Communications Commission auction. DISH offered $1.56 billion for the licenses in exchange for the additional 10 megahertz of spectrum, including the use of the 2,000-2,020 MHz band for downlink operations. The FCC plans to use the money to fund an emergency responders wireless network.
