The CTIA trade association took the unusual step today of wading into a nasty fight between two of its members and voted to endorse a policy that is strongly opposed by Nextel. The policy is designed to solve interference issues between Nextel's network and public safety radio systems. The proposal backed by Verizon Wireless, and now the CTIA, would force Nextel to pony up $3 billion, and receive spectrum in the 2100 MHz band. Nextel's proposal has the company paying only $850 million, and receiving much more valuable spectrum in the 1900 MHz band.
