Verizon Wireless Challenges FCC Auction Rules
Sep 13, 2007, 3:01 PM by (staff)
Claiming that the rules set forth for the upcoming FCC 700 MHz auction violate the law, Verizon filed a lawsuit with the U.S. Court of Appeals to challenge the FCC to change them. The FCC recently agreed that one-third of the airwaves set for auction in January be open to any device and any service, so long as the network is not harmed. AT&T, Google, Skype and others supported the FCC proposal, but Verizon feels the open access stipulation is a threat. Neither the FCC nor Verizon commented on the matter beyond the complaint itself.
