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?
