re: Battle Lines Form in VZ Wireless-MSO Deals

What's making this confusing is that the bundling deals and the spectrum deals are being sorta  tied together in this proceeding even though VZ Wireless and the MSOs have insisted that they shouldn't be. 


They have agreed to give the details of the commercial agreements (the service  bundling piece) to the DoJ and the FCC just to keep the spectrum approval process moving along, but now Sprint, DirecTV, et al, think they need to see all the details of the commercial agreements as well  in order to comment on the spectrum sale proceeding. 


By arguing that the spectrum deals are separate yet still allowing the DoJ and the FCC to look at the bundling agreements, I think the VZ Wireless/cable side has opened themselves up for this sort of request for access to the unredacted documents, though I'd be surprised if they are successful in getting them.

re: Battle Lines Form in VZ Wireless-MSO Deals

The spectrum deal looks like a total no-brainer:


1. Verizon Wireless is not buying any subscribers.


2. The spectrum is not owned by another wireless operator.


3. There are no current or planned uses of the spectrum by the present owners.


What's the big deal?
