FCC Chairman Kevin Martin said that he was pleased with the results of last month's 700MHz auction, noting that portions of the spectrum would remain open for all users. However, he bemoaned the fact that the public service portions of the band remained unsold because the bids failed to meet the price the government wanted. Martin also announced (to much applause) that he was asking the Commission to dismiss the Skype petition restricting users' ability to choose their own software to connect with wireless networks.
