Now Wait for Wireless Broadband
Verizon Wireless is now suing the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) over the "Open Access" rules they set for the spectrum sell-off.
Understandable, if irksome. Verizon doesn't want to loose its ability to lock customers into long-term contracts.
But I can't help thinking the suit might be bad for Verizon -- and the other major carriers -- if it delays the 700Mhz auction. Simply because it will give Sprint Corp. (NYSE: S) more time to establish its WiMax network without any serious competition in its way.
