blame FCC The FCC is the reason why we have a less competitive wireless industry than it should be. The FCC bureaucrats want to protect their future private sector jobs.
They say they want it to be competitive but engage in actions that cause the opposite...such as delaying approval to use Dish's AWS-4 spectrum for terrestrial-only and approving neutered net neutrality rules. The FCC stole 5mhz of spectrum from DISH so they could sell it to Sprint...and they held up DISH's application for years because of this!! In effect that is what happened.
This is why we need a smaller government, with less power. The more power the government has the less efficient the economy works because these bureaucrats have their own agenda based on an ideology. The private is much more efficient at allocating capital and making decisions.
Too much of anything can be bad, but the reality is that less oversight without the checks and balances lead up to Housing Market collapses like we were handed in 2008 and huge oil spills like we had in 2010 in the Gulf of Mexico.
Nobody wants to be told what to do but rarely do they ever take into consideration the harm they cause others when greed is involved.
