FCC wireless mischief: On to the substance

Here’s a critique of the FCC’s new “staff report” from AT&T itself. Obviously, AT&T is an interested party and has a robust point of view. But it’s striking the FCC was so sloppy in a staff report — for instance not addressing the key issue at hand: spectrum — let alone releasing this not-ready-for-prime-time report to the public.

Surely, it is neither fair nor logical for the FCC to trumpet a national spectrum crisis for much of the past year, and then draft a report claiming that two major wireless companies face no such constraints despite sworn declarations demonstrating the opposite.

The report is so off-base and one-sided that the FCC may actually have hurt its own case.
