Re: Elephant in the room. Dan Jones, have you read though the Petitions to Deny?  Some make very valid points, as Fugitive says.  I would suggest you read though them too.

Re: Elephant in the room. Whether or not the FCC relents the Northern District of Texas bankruptcy proceeding is being reopened complicating matters. Former shareholders and debtors look for newly priced asset funds to come their way. FCC would be violating its own rules.

Because most of FiberTower's licenses were not timely constructed, they terminated by operation of Section 101.527(d) of the rules, and the spectrum associated with those licenses no longer is held by FiberTower. Consequently, transfer of those licenses would contravene the Commission's own rules and policies. Moreover, the Commission has determined that if, as here, a transaction violates Commission rules, and frustrates or undermines policies and enforcement of the Act, it does not satisfy the public interest, convenience, and necessity standard for approving a transfer of control.

Re: Elephant in the room. True but either the FCC relents and allows Fibertower and ATT to use the licenses or they sit on the shelf until 2020 when maybe the courts will make a decision. The FCC, United States, and 5G cannot wait that long so the FCC will relent. The FCC of today with Pai is totally different than that of when it was under Obama and Wheeler.

Elephant in the room.

93% of Fibertower licenses are in the FCCs pocket.

Because most of FiberTower's 24 GHz and 39 GHz licenses were not timely constructed, they terminated by operation of Section 101.527(d) of the rules, and the spectrum associated with those licenses no longer is held by FiberTower. Filling for public notice and multiple petitions to deny filled. Worthy of its own article. http://wireless2.fcc.gov/UlsApp/ApplicationSearch/applAdmin.jsp?applID=10148372#attachments

Re: "Journalism" While it's cool of Dennis to stand up for me, I don't care, I totally appreciate people hassling me about stories. For the record, the interesting thing here -- I think -- is how AT&T will use this spectrum. But I've been out at investor days this week so I haven't had much time to dig into out.

Re: "Journalism" Accept my apologies Dan. I was too hard on you. I should have just informed you of what I knew and left it at that. I just get tired of all these articles and posts that don't take the extra steps. You were simple stating something but I would have liked to have seen a deeper dive and more interpretation.  I guess that is the world we live in now.

Re: "Journalism" What exactly is cryptic about the headline, out of interest?

Re: "Journalism" Facts are facts. We would all be better off with factual articles rather than misleading and cryptic headlines and articles.

Re: "Journalism" Are you ignoring your insulting tone, or do you not see it? You seem to be new to this message board, so maybe you're not used to the way our community communicates.

Re: "Journalism" Correct Mendy. When you have well informed readers contributing key missing pieces to the article then it is in the best interest of the author to be thankful and not so condescending.
