...that Verizon never should have been allowed to purchase A and B block in the first place. They never intended to use it. They were simply hoarding it.

Finally, someone with sense and integrity in posting. You have made my day mate!!!

When they own both blocks in most places no one else stands a chance. Reason such as this is why people can't get unlimited data any longer (from a real network that is unless you buy someones else plan from att or verizon that had unlimited data. If all these networks didn't hoard all the spectrum then others would easily be able to offer Great values all across the market.

Spectrum use requires equipment.
The assumption that freed up spectrum would allow everyone to have unlimited data access doesn't account for real life costs of running and maintaining a network.

The assertion that if Verizon, ATT or any other major/minor carrier released spectrum they aren't using would allow some other carrier to supply service in that area is based on an assumption that some company would be willing to invest in the infrastructure to utilize that spectrum.

Too many people been drinking the Koolaid here. Bigger Spectrum means more bandwidth kinda got to have that in order to offer unlimited data I mean try sprint end of story... Sprint has pimped out their network so much that no one get's good speeds on data so they can offer unlimited data because they already know they are slow as crap. Of course you have to have equipment to make it all work and if some of the other carriers could get their hands on the towers or spectrum they would do just fine. GO back to the Koolaid and enjoy your overpriced data white i sit here and Hog the crap out of it using an avg of 30-40gbs on my MIFI while verizon can't do a dang thing about it! Heck I even put my phone on using netflix and steaming data products...

I'm going to call your bluff on that one. Verizon's network isn't capable of pushing 40Gb/s to your device. And even if it was, I am certain that your MIFI router couldn't handle it. And even if it could, I have never heard of a handset that could receive it, but certainly not through an LTE chip. I have no doubt that you're consuming tons of data, but I think you're grossly exaggerating.
