Rural Cellular Association Moves to Block AT&T's Spectrum Grab
The Rural Cellular Association filed a petition with the Federal Communications Commission on March 11 asking the agency to block AT&T's purchase of 700MHz spectrum from Qualcomm's MediaFLO business. The RCA argues that this would further empower the AT&T-Verizon Wireless duopoly that dominates the U.S. market and would be bad for consumers. RCA President & CEO Steven K. Berry said in a prepared statement, "If the FCC chooses to grant the transaction, despite the obvious competitive harms, it should require interoperability of devices across all 700MHz band licenses and require AT&T to reach automatic data roaming agreements with any interested carrier. The continued dominance of the two largest carriers must not be further promoted, and it is time for the FCC to take action to ensure a competitive marketplace."
