No. If you are talking about AT&T's slow 3G W-CDMA roll out, regulatory approval and NIMBYism have nothing to do with the current state of incompletion.

1. W-CDMA overlay does not require new "towers." It needs only minor modifications or additions to existing cell sites.
2. AT&T has deployed W-CDMA in all major metro areas but has neglected largely rural areas.

So, the primary factors stopping AT&T from using its ample existing spectrum to complete its 3G W-CDMA overlay are AT&T's own sloth and lack of concern about rural areas.
