I agree with you. Big government should not be mixing with big business. The big question is if the FCC forced the roaming agreements as a knee-jerk reaction to smaller carriers not being able to obtain spectrum licensing because bigger companies bought it up before regulators were paying attention. Personally, I don't feel the federal government has the right to force agreements like that on the private sector, and shouldn't, especially if it is a CYA situation because of a lack of regulation on spectrum licensing that caused the problem.

Now here's the twist. The FCC has seen plenty of fire coming there way, especially on here, when it comes to regulating spectrum licensing. Ends up being a Catch-22, and I truly do not envy their position.

There is definitely a fine line between government regulation "for the good of the people" and government interference in the private sector. We need to keep watch.
