Way to parry words Verizon.

"T-Mobile is more than welcome to participate in any auction the FCC holds. No company can prevent another from participating."

Umm, that is not what T-Mobile is complaining about. Tmobile has every intention to bid. The point is that T-Mobile can have all the money in the world and bid its ass off only to receive the maximum of 30mhz.

You're right on. Verizon has much deeper pockets to bid on spectrum. They don't even need that spectrum. Verizon can say T-Mobile is welcome to participate all day long, but it doesn't take away from the fact that T-Mobile doesn't have the cash res...

Not so fast.

I remember reading something about 1-2 months ago about how although ATT and Verizon may own the most bandwidth, they have the least amount of bandwidth per customer when compared to T-Mobile and Sprint.

That is why Verizon and ATT ...
