Re: Reinstate the Spectrum Screen FOR REAL
He never said that its the government's job to ensure ANY company stays in business. What he is referring to is to stop allowing a couple of companies to hoard all of the available spectrum. VZ buying up all the spectrum available is no different than ATT trying to hit a homerun with the purchase of TMobile. While it is not the governments job to ensure X or Y business stays in business, it is their job to make sure that when they are licensing PUBLIC airwaves that they make sure that the market is highly competitive and full of choices.
Exactly. The government should have no input on the pricing or competitive behavior of the firms EXCEPT to set adequate policy ensuring that competitive pressures continue to exist.
AT&T, Verizon, Sprint and Tmobile can all go belly up for all I care.
As long as they are replaced by not fewer than 3 new competitors, everything will be fine.
That's NOT government picking the losers. It's government making sure there are more than three winners, and it's good policy.
