There are no sour grapes. Tmobile's concern is legitimate. I also do not support Verizon's move. Verizon is leveraging their power and wealth to stymie competition. Their approach may differ than AT&T's, however, it is the same game.

In my area, Sprint unsuccessfully tried to build a tower on a Fire Station's property just north of my City. They could not get approval from the town. Verizon wanders in and successfully was able to get approval by a Judge.

I have consistantly fought in having balanced competition, and I feel Verizon's move is not in consumer interest. It is time the FCC start using more of its power to retain consumer choice before it's too late.

Also, Clearwire owns the most spectrum; not Sprint. Thus the reason Sprint should remain present in Clearwire's vision.
