The four inbred families
The auction process has become something of a shell-game where only four wealthy families can afford to bid (and acquire) spectrum rights. Until spectrum auctions are designed to prevent additional inbreeding between these four families will customer needs be met.

I’m still amazed that the FCC, a Federal Authority, has the ability to allocate property to companies. If states were in charge of issuance of licenses for intangible property in the same manner they are able for tangible property such as real estate, through registration, titles and liens, then likely everyone’s service would improve. People in the communities where service is delivered should be able to take pride in connecting families and neighbors. Instead, it’s controlled by faceless organization and a commissioner whom apparently can make rules that effectively take (very) tangible city and county easement rights away for the mere cost of Peanut Butter Reese’s.
