AT&T: ‘DoJ favours T-Mobile, Sprint for 600MHz auction’

AT&T Mobility has accused the US Department of Justice (DoJ) of attempting to manipulate the upcoming 600MHz incentive auction to ensure that the two smaller nationwide carriers – Sprint Nextel and T-Mobile USA – win most of the available spectrum on offer. In a letter to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), AT&T said that the DoJ’s suggestion that AT&T Mobility and Verizon Wireless would be bidding on the low-frequency spectrum merely to ‘foreclose’ access to it is inaccurate, adding that the DoJ’s intervention on the behalf of Sprint and T-Mobile is unlawful and potentially puts the auction in jeopardy.
