SERIOUSLY. I hope that the FCC takes the petition from Verizon and just throws it in the recycle bin...which I'm sure they will do figuratively

Recycle bin? They need to toss that into the incinerator. There is no way in hell that the sevice would be the same on sub 1 Ghz spectrum as compared to their 2.5 Ghz spectrum with the same channel width in any given area. Verizon is acting like this is super-prime spectrum, but in reality, this spectrum is usually filed under "G". (Gahbidge).

I read that because base stations are 100x cheaper now, that spectrum is infinitely more valuable, and the data speeds are lightening fast. Softbank uses the same spectrum band in Japan, and could get cost savings with buying handsets for sprint, as well as itself.

Making more economical towers may be true, however the spectrum band doesnt change it is still 2.5ghz I dont see how Softbank or Sprint would be able to optimize this frequency to be more effective in a city area other then building a large amount of towers to cover a large area...

LOL, agreed this spectrum is terrible... Thats why many current 4G Wimax customers cant get a signal inside their homes or if they are driving too fast hahahaha. But seriously this is just childish move by Verizon -.-
