It's not the larger companies fault for being able to afford more spectrum and out bidding the smaller companies. I understand the other issues concerning the larger companies like Verizon and ATT, but this would be unfair practice. That's like going to a car auction and a millionaire buys up all the quality cars. If he has the money, who is the government to say that he can't, just because you or I can't afford to do so.
Is that bad for us? It most certainly can be, if you're in the market for a nice car at a low price. But, that doesn't mean that they were wrong for having the ability to buy the cars.
From my understanding, spectrum auctions isn't a night and day difference from any other auction. Then again, my understanding is limited to what I've read here and there. I've never researched the total process, or compared the process to public auctions to government auctions.
So, if someone has better insight, please feel free to explain.
