Sprint, T-Mobile Ask FCC to Stop the Clock on Verizon Deals
Sprint, T-Mobile, DirecTV, and the Rural Telecommunications Group today filed a letter with the Federal Communications Commission requesting it that it stop the clock on its review of Verizon's proposed spectrum purchases. The groups' chief concern is the amount of redacted material in Verizon's own FCC filings with respect to its agreements with the cable companies involved in the purchase. The groups want the clock stopped until Verizon and its cable partners reveal all the terms of the spectrum purchases and the associated cross-promotional components. The FCC typically reviews such deals within a period of 180 days. Stopping the clock amounts to a delay in the official review process.
