The DOJ has a specific obligation in holding carriers to play the fair game as it states here in the Statutory Framework of the law.

---" Congress enacted Section 6404 of the Spectrum Act, which modifiesSection 309(j)to prohibit the Commission from preventing an otherwise qualified entity from participating in an auction, but reaffirms the Commission’s authority “to adopt and enforce rules of general applicability, including rules concerning spectrum aggregation that promote competition.”--

The first part may seem to the point you were trying to make. However, the second part clearly states that the exception is indeed to promote healthy competition. This means the competitive aspects must remain intact at all costs. When dealing with public interest, the DOJ has the right to exempt the two larger entities from gaining too much of an anti-competitive upper hand.
