A number of organizations have formally requested that the Federal Communications Commission stop the clock on its 180 day review of Verizon Wireless's proposed AWS spectrum purchases. Signees of the request include Sprint Nextel, the Rural Telecommunications Group, Rural Carriers Association, DirecTV, FairPoint Communications, Free Press, Media Access Project, New America Foundation, Public Knowledge, and the Communication Workers of America. The group argues that the deal represents considerable change and consolidation in the industry requiring more detailed review of the details. The groups ask that the shot clock be delayed so they may have "a meaningful opportunity for review of the relevant materials and the preparation of insightful comment on these transformative arrangements." Verizon is hoping to purchase 122 AWS spectrum licenses from a consortium of cable companies.

Verizon and AT&T Listen Up!

You two giants have ALL the spectrum you need already. So much of it is unused. We are on to you. You are attempting to block anyone else from getting into the cellular game as well as keep the smaller carriers from growing. Cease and desist NOW!
Sprint should worry more about its network and its horde of spectrum more then telling others what to do.
