Three sources have revealed that The New York-based carrier has delayed its board meeting scheduled on the week of Aug. 5 that was aimed deciding to acquire startup companies. Industry Minister, James Moore, and Prime Minister, Stephen Harper, have made several public comments signaling that the government has no plans of changing its policy regarding the auction. The current policy allows new entrants to the Canadian market to bid on up to two out of four blocks of prime radio waves, while limiting the incumbents to just one. Hence, experts have speculated that Verizon might have changed its mind and decided to exclusively enter the market through auction and buy out two blocks of spectrum in the 700-megahertz frequency band, i.e. the same spectrum it owns in the United States.
