They are doing this when there's only a few carriers left and Verizon and AT&T own the good spectrum

it didn't go through because it would have just been AT&T and Verizon sprint would be a dissssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssstant 3. An nobody wants it to be a 2 man race. Glad it didn't go through AT&T already is crooks can't let them steal customers that chose not to go to them for a reason just buy buying everybody else.

Lobbyist hard at work for the big two is paying off I bet. Verizon getting the AWS spectrum to go through through the TMobile deal shows the need for better control. However the one commissioner introducing this should be scrutinized with a magnifiying glass.

Remember that the Federal Reserve was created by Senator Aldrich introducing the need to regulate and create a systematic credit monetary system. Ever since the Feds were created the dollar has been devalued, and international bankers now run the worlds monetary interest. Aldrich's daughter was married to IIRC John D. Rockefeller's son. Taxing of the people, and the Federal reserve was born by this crooked Senator....Bribery was his main way of achieving massive power for a Senator in the early 1900's. Lobbyist and bribery go hand in hand today, in fact lobbying is a form of bribery if you really look at it!...beware of that commissioner, and who is lobbying him. It's a well known fact that AT&T, and Verizon are lobbying the FCC extremely hard, and fro AT&T to be so much in accords with this just makes me wonder!
