• The Duopoly continues to try to dismantle the reserve; T-Mobile fires back

    07.30.15 | Save Wireless Choice

    From T-Mobile’s July 29th ex parte filing with the FCC:

    AT&T and Verizon have sought to undo the spectrum reserve since the Commission first adopted this auction-design feature to provide competitors an opportunity to bid on critical low-band spectrum resources without fear of foreclosure by the two dominant providers.1 AT&T’s most recent gambit to dismantle the reserve rests on the false assertion that reserve-eligible bidders can cease bidding in the forward auction as soon as the spectrum reserve is triggered.

    Meanwhile, AT&T and Verizon will benefit financially if they can delay the spectrum-reserve trigger.
