CCA blasts AT&T spectrum purchases, urges regulators to consolidate review – FierceWireless

The Competitive Carriers Association again urged the FCC to combine AT&T Mobility’s (NYSE:T) various spectrum purchases into one comprehensive transaction that the agency could more effectively review. AT&T, for its part, staunchly argued against such a move, contending it would “introduce delay that is contrary to the public interest.”

“Allowing the largest carriers to obtain unlimited amounts of spectrum on the secondary market raises serious competitive concerns,” said CCA President and CEO Steven Berry. “The only way for the FCC to truly see the devastating consequences of further spectrum aggregation is by consolidating the proposed applications. On their own, AT&T’s proposed license acquisitions may not seem significant, but when added together, it totals to a significant amount of spectrum.”
