Lawsuit Filed To Delay Spectrum Auction
Apr 28, 2006, 1:54 PM by (staff)
A cofounder of the National Resources Defense Council (NRDC) has filed suit against the FCC in a US district court today. Maria Gonzalez along with the EMR Policy Institue, American Skin Association, and others seek to block the AWS (3G) spectrum auction scheduled for June until the FCC prepares an environmental impact study of the effects of long term exposure to low level radiation in the new spectrum. THe NRDC has previously challenged the FCC's exposure guidelines, but has not been successful.
Only in America ...
So if this lawsuit gets serious and the research is actually required before the FCC can auction off the spectrum, are we going to be waiting longer for 3G services from the little guys?
Right now, it isn't looking too good for T-Mobile.
they should also research that 700mhz qualcomm is holding back for that media service.
Long term exposure research? That's going to take...a long time.
