    Interesting. A faculty member at IIT Chicago's consulting company did this study. Sounds like Verizon is hoarding.

    It's obviously some political wrangling on T-Mobile's part to try to block Verizon from picking up more spectrum (or swapping their existing spectrum). It's kind of a weak argument however, T-Mobile is picking some very selective metrics. Generally speaking, T-Mobile focuses on city coverage and Verizon has a wider nation-wide map. So since Verizon covers alot more rural area, of course they won't be as "efficient" as T-Mobile in terms of spectrum usage. I think the FCC will see this "report" for what it is, and it won't have any impact on anything.
