1.) The government more or less has already decided to use this technology for it's emergency response. Many of you seem to forget that Sprint is already being forced to evacuate (Iden ) spectrum that interfers with current government emergency response systems...

Only the spectrum that interferes with emergency frequencies is part of the forced vacate. Sprint in turn, receives spectrum in exchange. A crude illustration would be:


Sprint spectrum currently: 800-825 mhz, 850-900 mhz

Government spectrum currently: 825-850 mhz


Sprint: 825-900 mhz (unbroken)

Government: 800-825 mhz

These are not the exact frequencies, but it gives you a rough idea.
