FCC butting heads with DISH


Recommended Posts

The FCC is proposing some rule changes that could delay DISH's planned network. This could affect the granting of the waivers that DISH is currently pushing for. I wonder if AT&T is behind this?

 

The Death Star was arguing that the FCC should hold DISH to the same standards as LightSquared in making DISH build its network before it was ready. I think this was a ploy to force DISH in a corner and possibly spurring a spectrum sale to AT&T. Now it appears that all the sudden the FCC wants to delay things which could also play into AT&T's hands. Egan says they may not go forward if FCC interference increases it's risk profile.
