US proposing to share some "prime spectrum" with carriers

I hope they just figure out some way to "share" the spectrum amongst the carriers, etc instead of just having another auction to sell off spectrum which only Verizon and AT&T will really get to dip in.

What ever happened to that spectrum Sprint was holding onto that they were gonna lose if they didn't use it? If that the Wimax or is it something else?

This is good. It will allow carriers to offer more generous data packages...either that or stop being so stingy and shady with their current practices.
It will be interesting to see if they actually share the spectrum splitting it between the carriers, or they sell it to the highest bidder.
Wireless data technology is growing at an alarming pace. I just read on PA that Huawei has a 30 Gbps network in the making; it would be a shame if all that tech gets confined to the military simply because the carriers wouldn't have the spectrum to sell it.
