Re: Another view - Defending highest bidder wins rules
Yet if you look at actual history, AT&T and Verizon freeze out innovation. AT&T simply wants supply and competitors cut down to raise prices and stifle competition, which in turn stifles competition.
They simply want a return to the Old Monopoly days minus the pesky regulations they had pre-1984. In this regard Verizon aids them because it creates a proxy alternative that isn't really any different - OK, maybe they manage their spectrum better and roll out 4G services out quicker, albeit for a very high premium. Still, it's not actual competition.
