According to a Bloomberg report today citing unnamed sources, two of the three sitting FCC Commissioners have approved the big TwoFer: Clearwire’s takeover by Sprint, and Sprint’s sale of itself to Softbank.
The decision, if in fact it has been made, has not yet been posted to the FCC’s web site.
Presuming the truth of the Bloomberg story, no one should be surprised by this massive frequency consolidation given Sprint’s Network Vision project. These deals have been about access to bandwidth.
Bandwidth is everything.
