Still, the focus should be on getting minority carriers to acquire and build upon new spectrum licenses. This is the main path to getting competition to flourish.
And how does that benefit customers? Company XYZ will have to spend Millions to create that network. They will want to make that $$ back and when they see that you will pay $X for service they will initially price their service at a little less than $X. But over time it will go up to near the same as the big boys. Why? Investors -at some point they will need to make a profit or increase their profit level.
Competition does nothing but make you feel good. It almost never results in truly lower prices or better service. Look at gas stations or grocery stores as an example. All are roughly the same prices across the board....
