FCC Sets Deadline for Opposers of Verizon's Spectrum Grabs
Reinstate the Spectrum Screen FOR REAL
No single entity or corporation shall be permitted to own more than 30% of the actively used, currently consumed spectrum in any given market area.
Such calculations would exclude consideration of airwaves that "could" be used for wireless services, but currently are not implemented, such as LightSquared's L-band spectrum and the AWS spectrum Verizon has been hording and doing nothing with for all these years. Only spectrum for which end-user devices exist in the mass market would be included in the determinations
We have to make sure that there are never fewer than 3 STRONG players in the wireless carrier marketplace.
I see no other way to do that, besides forcing consumers to switch service providers when their current carrier reaches the point where it can't cope with all the traffic.
