get to the point said:
Hope they say no! One company should not have to give something up and get nothing in return.

The FCC doesn't (and shouldn't) care about individual companies and their profit margins. The FCC mandate is to ensure the competitive viability of the marketplace at large which is a completely different perspective.

If the spectrum transfer were in any way inappropriate, AT&T would have the first lawyer in the courtroom trying to weasel out of the break-up details, so why aren't they?

I expect this transaction to sail through the FCC without a ripple.

Besides- AT&T refused to deploy service in their AWS spectrum holdings anyway! At least in T-mobile's hands, someone will actually be able to communicate over those warehoused channels that have been sitting dormant in AT&T's asset portfolio for OVER 5 YEARS.
