Wireless Spectrum BS.

Not a win for consumers just more lining of the pockets.25 billion will be pissed away in 4.5 seconds. By the time anything is done with this it will have change hands so many time's the cap will be 250mb for a year of service and that will be throttled.

All it did is go from one entity to another, consumers didn't benefit at all, unless you call price gouging beneficial.

More spectrum straight to the massive incumbents ensuring their dominance and the lack of competition in our future.

Wow, it's getting completely out of control!

It's a win for at&t and Verizon. Also a win for DirecTV and Dishnetwork. By killing off OTA TV you're going to force those stubborn 10%-15% that dare get network TV for free from an antenna to subscribe.

Oh look more spectrum to get auctioned off and then sit unused in Verizon and AT&T ownership.

How is it being unused by the telcos any different than the TV people not using it other than the FCC getting a bunch of money.
