Re: Only 120 Mhz
said by Telco:The government builds roads, telephone lines, sewers, electric lines, and essentially all major infrastructure- so why doesn't it build the broadband lines and wireless towers? Then rent those out to private companies.
I think all of the spectrum needs to be reevaluated and reused sensibly. Wireless data is going to be huge from now on, basically, until the end of time. Anything or anyone using frequencies inefficiently should be forced to change, update, and move.
Congress needs to wake up and realize that you cannot give companies like Sprint and Tmobile high frequencies and expect them to compete with 700MHZ that the two monopolies have hoarded. For example, a provider with 2.5Ghz needs about 4 to 6 times the infrastructure (base stations) to match the coverage of a single 700Mhz base station.
