The article reports that Google Inc. was noncommittal about jumping into a federal spectrum auction moments after the U.S. Federal Communications Commission adopted bidding rules that were at least partly designed to elicit a multibillion-dollar investment from the Internet-search company. Google said they need some time to study the actual text of the commission's rules before they make any definitive participation in the auction.
