Re: Perhaps there should be more incentives (or penalties) to use (or for not using) the spectrum that WISPs win?
The lawyers and strategists probably have a field day every time the rules change. Exploiting loopholes maybe be an industry in itself as the rules get more complicated with exceptions and presumed "help" for various sectors planned within them. I wonder if even such ideas as promoting service to rural areas are actually doing what is proposed?

which exploited a loophole in the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) auction process

These auctions obviously favor the bigger companies with more $$$ - but perhaps the spectrum should come with strings attached? So that no company can buy spectrum and sit on it... or so that it can't be re-sold in an acquisition of another company?

the Dish dish
To clarify, Wheeler's proposal wouldn't retroactively affect Dish, but it would imit it from doing this again in the future. Dish's actions in the last auction are, however, under review by the FCC, so it is possible they try to force it to pay full price.
