Yes, its another boring – yawn – announcement about FCC auctions and bandwidth and spectrum and all that stuff.
But its the backbone that really matters, although few of us appreciate that fact.
In the 18th Century there were furious struggles to secure “rights of way” for the railroads to lay their tracks so folks could ride trains instead of horses and wagons. Today its the bandwidth spectrum – controlled by the FCC – that is in such high demand so that you can watch YouTube on your smartphone.
Glad to see that another of our carriers, AT&T has comforted its shareholders with good news about the immediate future.
