Yes! I love that Idea - Spectrum is appointed or allotted, or auctioned based on your actual customer base for any given area, and for ACTUAL needs only.
If they could somehow test and for certain determine - This many Mhz serves this many people, then your idea with this system would probably be best. I mean right now the big issue is wasted spectrum.
At&t has tonnes of 2.3Ghz spectrum ( I think that's the band) , it doesnt matter if its crappy, they arent using it or touching it at all, its sitting there, and wasting away, while any other carrier could be actively using it to serve people and help get rid of this spectrum crunch.
Owning and being able to use are two different things. It was just decided in this past June that they could use the 2.3MHz spectrum after many year of dealing with both the FCC and Sirius (the neighboring spectrum band occupant).
