AT&T Does About Face On 700 MHz Rules

AT&T VP Jim Cicconi today said the company now supports FCC Chairman Kevin Martin's proposal for 700 MHz spectrum. Martin's plan called for any networks built in the new spectrum to allow any device to work on it and any application to run on it, banning the typical device-locking business models used on wireless networks today. However, since Martin's proposal does not affect current networks, AT&T no longer sees the plan as a threat to its business, despite a July 12 filing from another AT&T VP saying just that. Every major carrier as well as the CTIA has written the FCC to protest the spectrum use proposal, AT&T is the first to break ranks.

Thats all we need At&t becoming a monopoly again. Thats so retarded I hope the Dems gain more seats in office. We need more regulation in big business.
There are 180 wireless carriers of which 4 are major national ones. Do you even know what the definition of a monopoly is?
Stoopered i find it hard to believe based on your idiotic comment you know anything about a monopoly , Government, Or how the wireless industry or Government works. The last thing this country needs is more laws and bigger government. Screw DemocR...

Reminds me of Number Porting

I remember everyone complained about number porting and then VZW changed their mind and supported it. This led to Number Porting becoming a reality. Perhaps now, open 700Mhz will become a reality as well.
