"Section 4105 of the Bill, as currently worded, would undercut those benefits by
prohibiting the Federal Communications Commission from considering existing spectrum
holdings in determining a carrier’s participation in future spectrum auctions."

Effectively allowing appointed officials to determine winners and losers.

All well and good, if we trust these people.
Money generates influence and power.

Commissioners are appointed by the sitting president and 'approved' by congress.

The present FCC's conditional approval of use of extraterrestrial spectrum as a terrestrial LTE network is being questioned by congress at present.

Why did they evel allow it conditionally?
Money? Influence?
