AT&T Dips Its Oar In

by tzsm98    Nov 16, 2012, 4:27 PM

Nice of AT&T to be watching out for the US consumer that way. By golly, they are such a consumer oriented bunch of guys there trying to make sure OUR spectrum is not controlled by a foreign power.

Of course AT&T misses the point. No company controls spectrum in the US, companies buy the rights to use it eitrher directly from the government is an auction or on the secondary market. Control of it is ultimately in the hands of the people as expressed by through the FCC. It can be made worthless or taken away if necessary. Anyone who doubts this need only try to tune their FM radio to 45 MHz, the original US FM band, to receive a station.
