Dish affiliates surrender some spectrum licenses


Recommended Posts

I'm surprised Dish agreed to this, they complied with the rules as they where written at the time (abeit not the spirit of the law). The FCC changedv the rules after the auction. Would a court side of Dish?


Ex post facto laws are illegal and frowned upon in the states.  I would think that Dish could win because they are facing punishment in the form of hundreds of millions of dollars.

Some articles are saying Dish chose to give up licenses where AT&T and T-Mobile were the second highest bidders since they're aiming for a deal with Verizon. If AT&T and T-Mobile bids don't reach the prices Dish agreed to pay, Dish will have to pay the difference.
