Sprint plans to skip upcoming spectrum auction

Nov 13 (Reuters) - Sprint Corp said on Wednesday it would not take part in an upcoming government auction of so-called H-Block airwaves, potentially leaving the field clear for Dish Network Corp to buy the spectrum.

Sprint, which was expected by analysts to try to buy the spectrum, announced the decision a day after No. 4 U.S. mobile provider T-Mobile US Inc, said it too had decided against participating in the auction, which is slated to take place in January.
