Industry Minister James Moore says a majority of the spectrum in next year's wireless auction will be set aside for the new, small players that emerged a few years ago.

It's part of the government's efforts to increase competition and lower telecom prices for consumers.

Moore told a news conference in Toronto this morning that he's confident that more investors will emerge for the new auction.

He says details on the timing of the auction are still being worked out.

Further announcements are expected in the next few weeks.

Moore says the government doesn't have any estimate of how much money will be raised through the new auction.
