Fred Upton, a Michigan Congressman, is claiming that Google "gamed" the 700MHz auction by triggering the open access clause by bidding $4.6 billion.

He said, "Google was successful in gaming the system." He points to Google bid and the open network clause preventing more companies from bidding and the number going even higher. He would have preferred a closed network that companies would pay more for.

The FCC Chairman, Kevin Martin, doesn't think so saying, "My goal was to make sure that whoever won the C-block had an open platform."

We're going to go ahead and side with Mr. Martin on this one.
