It seems that At&t apparently has the money to improve their existing network but would rather focus on becoming the largest provider to what end? How are they going to convince the public that they will deliver a solid network once their allowed to attain all this spectrum given their track record?

By showing those TV ads?

Like that guy watching TV on his cab, or that DMV commercial.

My question is, how many minutes of TV I can watch before the 2Gigs are up?

Of course, I am not buying it. (either the phones or the ads).

Im all set, thats why I decided to a get a 4G smartphone now, so that I would be grandfathered in with an unlimited 4G data plan.

I got the Samsung Droid Charge May 20.

ATT doesnt seem to want to use spectrum it already has. I think the FCC should attact a "use by" date to all new spectrum.

Wireless licenses are subject to license periods and construction requirements.

To illustrate, for its AWS 2100+1700 MHz licenses (which AT&T has been sitting on for nearly five years now), AT&T must show "substantial service" by the end of the license period (2021). For its Lower 700 MHz licenses, AT&T must provide coverage to at least 35 percent of each license's geographic area by 2013, 70 percent by the end of the license period (2019). Some buildout with the Lower 700 MHz licenses is underway, as AT&T will launch a few LTE 700 markets later this year.
