FCC Commish Uses Sprint As Launch Point to Bash Auction
This guy doesn't get it!
It is perfectly reasonable for the FCC to do something which is in the overall public interest, even if that means a little less revenue to the government from the auction itself.
WiMAX may have died, but using that for LTE with a bunch of repeaters in cities and buildings is going to be VERY advantageous for them. Imagine football stadiums.....
As for 600 - yes, it'll travel further and deeper, but I don't think they quite care about letting the cows in Montana stream Netflix yet.....
Blanket as many high-pop areas with fast LTE and work your way out with more towers for the smaller areas. It's not as if they don't have spectrum capable of such - it may not be 600-700, but it's good enough for most scenarios.
