It is debateable if the FCC has overstepped it's mandates by forcing carriers into roaming agreements.

I know that there will be a ton of 'nu uhhh' posts, but the FCC has evolved since it's inception.

It's scope has broadened from assuring that radio stations didn't overpower each other to beins some sort of public advocate over prices and tons of things that weren't origianlly envisioned.

There is not constitutional right to cellular service. Plain and simple.

Forcing corporations into business practices 'for the good of the people' is somewhat socialistic and if it goes too far, we might as well throw free market to the wolves.

Now here come the nu-uhhh posts and the 'it's public resource' spectrum arguments.

I respect them, but there has to be some limit on what the FCC can do, and I don't see it at present.
