— Verizon Wireless said Wednesday that it will auction the rights to use some radio frequencies, which could be worth billions of dollars.

Verizon bought the rights to use the frequencies from the government for $4.4 billion in 2008. They were formerly used by UHF TV stations.

Buyers could use the spectrum to offer wireless broadband in cities including New York, Washington, Philadelphia, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles and Miami.
