In most parts of a nation that would be ok, but in rural areas its better to have one or two companies build out and have roaming agreements. While in dense populated areas it would be better to have a network who has more people allowed more spectrum so they can sustain its customers.

I do not completely disagree with your point it works wonderful in theory and could work to certain extents. Every philosophy has Pro and Cons that need to be thought through before saying one is better than the other. I think a better way to go about changing our spectrum crisis is to slightly change instead of a radical change you are suggesting. Such the FCC put a limit on how much MHz per X thousands /million people per in a area for example the 700 Mhz a carrier is allows 20Mhz block per 25 million per sectioned area, with a stipulation that if it is not in use in 3 years they spectrum will be re-auctioned off unless you can prove that regulation held it off from being used. I think something along those lines would greatly improve efficiency in the spectrum holding, and it would be a smaller change than what you are suggesting which would be a easier pill for companies and people to swallow.
