(Reuters) – Dish Network Corp said it plans to take part in the U.S. Federal Communications Commissions large sale of low-frequency airwaves planned for mid-2015, according to a filing disclosed on Wednesday. Dishs Chairman Charlie Ergen and other executives met with the FCCs Chairman Tom Wheeler, four commissioners and numerous wireless officials on Monday, giving the most explicit pledge so far by the satellite TV provider to meaningfully participate in the so-called incentive auction. The incentive auction offers opportunities for competitive providers and new entrants to bid on and win much-needed lowband spectrum, which will facilitate the deployment of mobile broadband services, Dish Senior Vice President Jeffrey Blum wrote in the filing. Ergen, Blum and other Dish representatives also reiterated their plan to bid in the smaller AWS-3 spectrum auction scheduled to begin Nov. 13, where Dish is expected to be one of the main participants.
