Google Inc. has succeeded in its push to force the winner of airwaves being sold by the government to open its network to any mobile device.

One bidder offered $4.71 billion for the biggest set of airwaves being auctioned, surpassing a $4.6 billion threshold that triggered open-access rules, the Federal Communications Commission said yesterday on its website.
