As a condition of approval of the Sprint/Nextel merger, the FCC set some broadband wireless goals for the new company: Within four years of the merger, the companies must be serving 15 million people using their combined 2.5 GHz assets. That figure must double within six years. The combined companies control less then half of the 2.5 GHz band and both have actively trialed equipment for networks that could be deployed in the spectrum. As the author of this story notes, while it’s great to see some pressure on these companies to launch, the FCC has been known to forget requirements on telcos.
