Failure of FCC

If FCC could just do its job and plan spectrum use properly, we wouldn't have this problem. T-Mo doesn't have enough spectrum and had to use AWS for its 3G. Sprint is running 4 networks. This is no way to compete in a global information economy.

Also, PTT is dead. It's a niche technology with a very narrow customer base...everyone else has already moved on. This is why, despite that fact AT&T, Verizon, Sprint and US Cellular all offer it, you hardly hear about it.

The new network build sure is pretty though...and much more gentle on the planet as it requires less space.

I believe Sprint and T-mobile bought their spectrum at auction. The FCC isn't in the business of which private company deserves the spectrum the most, they just sell to the highest bidder.

If that 3rd spectrum band wasn't producing an efficient amount of value for Sprint you can bet they'd sell it to T-mobile in a heartbeat.

The FCC needs to be in the business of ensuring that there is some cohesive vision, some grand plan behind this country's infrastructure.

This century isn't like the last...we don't manufacture things to get ahead. We get ahead using information....and for that we need some semblance of a national infrastructure plan.

Letting the highest bidder buy and do what it will with spectrum resources will end in the clusterfuck we have now - shoddy coverage, high prices and countries overtaking us in technology.

The service economy is an economy that is dying. If you are making something then you are just moving money from one hand to the another. Information may make things more efficient but it is just moving money around or taking a small piece of the total pie.
China has a surplus because they make stuff and they can take all our information over time and use it for their on game. Then tell us to kiss off. We were powerful after WWII because every other major country was destroyed. We sold them everything to rebuilt when they could build their own and compete our trading got harder. Then China came alone with a work force that would work for nothing but was a good wage for them and we have funneled all our stored wealth and what we could borrow to them.
