Kohl Outlines Verizon–SpectrumCo Deal Concerns – 2012-05-24 16:46:55 | Broadcasting & Cable

Senate Antitrust Subcommittee Chairman Herb Kohl (D-Wis.) outlined his many concerns about the Verizon purchase of advanced wireless spectrum from cable in a letter to the FCC and Justice Thursday, but stopped short of asking them to block the deal, as he had with the AT&T-T-Mobile merger.

Kohl said that the spectrum deals — there are actually two, the other being with Cox, a former SpectrumCo member – raise “serious competition concerns” that warrant close examination. But he said he had not reached any final conclusion on their legality.
