The hi-tech industry, led by Google Inc., scored a big victory over incumbent broadband providers this week as draft rules released by FCC Chairman Kevin Martin for a highly anticipated radio-spectrum auction have incorporated many of the hi-tech industry's demands.

According to a Federal Communications Commission official, who has seen the rules which will be released shortly by Martin's office to the other four commissioners at the agency the auction of 22 megahertz of spectrum, out of a total 60 megahertz, will have conditions attached to it which may pave the way for Google to acquire spectrum for the first time and would enable the company to begin competing with the large incumbent providers of broadband service to customers and businesses.
