Today TerreStar announced that the Federal Communications Commission has granted it an ATC license. The ATC (Ancillary Terrestrial Service) license will allow TerreStar to integrate its 20MHz S Band satellite radio frequencies with terrestrial wireless services (in this case, AT&T's). By combining its own S Band spectrum with AT&T's existing wireless network, TerreStar should be able to provide satellite and/or cellular coverage across much of North America. TerreStar has already launched and tested its satellite, as well as introduced the hybrid sat-cell Genus Windows Mobile smartphone. The company plans a commercial launch later this year.

So the FCC has to ok a joint partnership between 2 companies that are sharing the spectrum they paid billions of dollars for? I can understand getting approval for unlicensed spectrum, but this kind of micro-management is ludacris. This partnership does nothing but help (a select few) consumers and doesn't hurt anyone!
