    ATT/T-Mobile

    It's interesting that the author, while eloquently stating that he does not agree with Mr. Rogers' position, did not extend that eloquence to explaining why it's technically impossible for Texas school children to benefit from a transfer of spectrum licenses to AT&T from T-Mobile USA. Licenses that may be of less benefit to a T-Mobile USA that expects no financial support from its parent, Deutsche Telekom. Licences from a T-Mobile USA that can't be leveraged to build an advanced 4G network because the company may not have the financial wherewithal to do build one.

    By obtaining those licenses, AT&T puts itself in a position to provide a wireless alternative for connecting schools to the Internet.
