The main difference

by Zpike    May 2, 2013, 11:52 AM

The main difference is that spectrum is a public asset being auctioned by the federal government- the same federal government that has an obligation to promote competition and bust up monopolies. When telecom companies were smaller and wireless spectrum was virtually a new asset, having an auction was a very sensible way to decide which corporations got access to these public resources. However, that is no longer the case, and the government has an obligation to promote competition, not to give big corporations any public assets they demand just because they have the money.
