Reinstate the Spectrum Screen FOR REAL

The FCC needs to protect competition in the wireless marketplace. The best tool at it's disposal to do that is to re-instate teh hard spectrum screen with language similar to the following:

No single entity or corporation shall be permitted to own more than 30% of the actively used, currently consumed spectrum in any given market area.

Such calculations would exclude consideration of airwaves that "could" be used for wireless services, but currently are not implemented, such as LightSquared's L-band spectrum and the AWS spectrum Verizon has been hording and doing nothing with for all these years. Only spectrum for which end-user devices exist in the mass market would be included in the determinations
"We have to make sure that there are never fewer than 3 STRONG players in the wireless carrier marketplace."

Why stop at three? Why not 4? 5? 10?

Once we have established that it is the proper role of government to choose winners and losers in ...
Or how about companies are not allowed to purchase additional spectrum until they're using at least 80% of what they own.

it seems that people just like to hate ATT, and not their counterpart.
