NEW YORK (Reuters) - Sprint Corp and T-Mobile US Inc said on Thursday that they had not applied to participate in Canada's upcoming spectrum auction in time for Tuesday's deadline.

Bigger rival AT&T Inc declined to comment on whether or not it had submitted an application. Verizon Communications Inc said earlier this month that it was not interested in expanding into Canada.
