TPW 21: The Battle for 700 MHz

by on July 20, 2007 · 2 comments


Yesterday, AT&T backed away from its strong opposition to any sort of open access regulations in the 700 MHz spectrum auction, backing a proposal by FCC chairman Kevin Martin to apply open access rules to one block of spectrum while leaving the other blocks unregulated.

In this week’s podcast, Hance, James, Adam, Jerry, and I discuss the politics and economics of the 700 MHz auction. We discuss what the rules will look like, whether there’s enough competition in the wireless market, whether Google will bid for the spectrum, and how recent developments affect Frontline’s proposal.

    I hope the comments against open access were to show an opposing opinion. Without open access we would never have seen the progression in internet, tv, or household phone technology that we enjoy today.
