FCC To Review the Relative Value of Low, High, and Super-high Spectrum Licenses 58

Posted by samzenpus
from the price-check dept.
MrSeb writes "The FCC is reviewing the rules it has for spectrum license ownership, particularly on how much spectrum any one company can hold. The FCC is considering this rework because the rules do not currently account for the properties of different frequencies of spectrum. There are three main classes of spectrum for cellular wireless networks: low band, high band, and super high band — but at the moment, they are all valued equally. Given that low band spectrum is valued favorably against high band and super high band spectrum in the market, and that AT&T and Verizon have by far the most low band spectrum, it makes sense for the FCC to adjust its rules in order to more accurately determine how much spectrum any one company needs."

    american system: think you are free
    chinese system: accept that the government is the head of the household
    your system: living in america knowing that the government is the head of the household
    ergo you feel like america is china
    ergo you feel like a chinese citizen

    sidenote: yes the chinese system works too.
    second sidenote: people like to be right when they feel like they are free. the international socio-econo-political system that we created together is more complicated than that.
