The same rules should apply to every company, no one gets favorable treatment....exactly what is wrong with that?

If at&t is subject to a particular regulation, then EVERY company should be subject to that regulation.

Nope. This "particular regulation" regards Ancillary Terrestrial Component (ATC) use of mobile satellite spectrum (a la LightSquared). AT&T has no mobile satellite spectrum, so AT&T is not "subject" to this regulation.

In fact, one has to wonder why AT&T takes an interest at all in this regulation. Surely, AT&T is not just trying to force an infeasible network build out timeline upon would be competitor Dish so that Dish has little choice but to sell its spectrum to an established carrier. No, AT&T would never do that, right?

It also has something to do with Dish and ATT not playing nicey nice anymore. Dish already has a large customer base to offer wireless service to. That is a fat threat to someone like ATT who can only offer those kinds of bundles in certain regions. Dish is nationwide and would be able to offer it to customers who used to have a ATT/Dish bundle that included its wireless services in the bundle. ATT would take a pretty big churn hit over a few years is Dish is "allowed" to do this. So of course ATT is against it. It may also hurt ATT internet as well if Dish offers highspeed LTE advanced to it's TV customers.

De La Vega and his pawns are sore losers. They need to get their heads out of their Twisted Evil and concentrate on improving their already crappy customer service and call quality.

I agree with T Bone here, same rules should apply reguardless on who it is. Also if you reread it states that AT&T was concerned about them using the 700 spectrum, which is the one they are using. This is a valid concern and any carrier would raise this issue to the FCC. I think its pretty hilarious that everyone has become very anti AT&T over the T-Mob merger. T-mobile would not have accepted the offer if they didn't see the benefit as well. Reguarless of what that outcome was, because of that whole issue the same regulations need to be put on everyone.

AT&T to FCC: We didn't win the take over of T-mobile, so why should anyone else win?

AT&T are losers!
