White House pushing ahead with airwaves auction plan - The Washington Post
"The Obama administration will make an economic case on Wednesday for moving ahead with a controversial auction of broadcast airwaves, even as some analysts argue that AT&T’s proposed merger with T-Mobile throws a wrench into the plan."
“The spectrum crisis is real and could impact investment and jobs if Congress doesn’t act quickly,” said Michael Balmoris, an AT&T spokesman.
“This letter and event at the White House makes me think right off the bat that they are worried they can’t get legislation through to pull this off,” said Jeffrey Silva, a senior technology policy director at Global Medley Advisors.
