"Awaken the Kracken!!!"

Granted nobody but AT&T really knows how much spectrum AT&T really needs, and competitors and consumer advocates alike continue to worry that AT&T is simply using their deep pockets to acquire additional spectrum to prevent new competitors from entering the market.

Nailed it!

They need the spectrum says Deloitte:

Not even close. A statement like that really means they don't have a damn clue on what they are talking about. You can't make blanket generalized statements about spectrum because it is a per-market situation depending on the spectrum any given company has....and i can tell u AT&T is running short and behind Sprint, Tmobile, and VZW when it comes to clean spectrum for LTE. (mostly due to T-mobile's and VZW's recent AWS acquisition).

Most of the area in question is not currently served by AT&T.

It's not killing off a competitor, ATNI though their botched integration of the six markets they bought killed themselves.

The company whose logo is the "death star" would never do that!!!
