Comcast (NASDAQ: CMCSA) and Dish Network (NASDAQ: DISH) are moving forward with their plans to participate in the FCC's upcoming 600MHz wireless spectrum auction, with the agency approving the two operators' applications.
According to a list of approved bidders released Friday by the FCC, Comcast is on the list, represented by signatory CC Wireless Investment, LLC.
Dish, meanwhile, appears as ParkerB.com Wireless, LLC. Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile are also participants.
Comcast hasn't revealed much about its auction plans. But the MSO's entry comes after it activated an MVNO deal with Verizon, then confirmed the creation of a dedicated mobile division.
Comcast, which also just announced the deployment of a mobile Wi-Fi van, boasts 14 million public Wi-Fi hotspots.
Bidding for the auction, which will shift 600 MHz spectrum from TV broadcasters to wireless carriers, is set to begin on August 16.
