Sneak Attack

by Slammer    Nov 9, 2012, 9:19 PM

The FCC better be watching this initiative very closely. Verizon holds the upper hand in bargaining their spectrum holdings. The little guys spend the money to buildout a network for LTE using Verizon's spectrum. Once completed, Verizon now has total control of leveraging a fail in part to these smaller carriers.

While the benefits appear jubilant, I fear of massive takeover by Verizon down the road.

How convenient to have the little guys build and then Verizon ambushes with a purchase once the smaller can no longer sustain the cost of leasing.
