Public Knowledge Notes AT&T Hypocrisy In Selling Spectrum

The following statement is attributed to Harold Feld, legal director of Public Knowledge:

 "It has recently come to our attention that AT&T is engaged in selling spectrum at a time when AT&T is telling the government and the public it needs to take over rival T-Mobile because it needs spectrum.

 "The sheer hypocrisy behind this action is almost beyond belief.  Given that the sale was publicly disclosed in July, it is unfathomable that AT&T for months has been trying to make spectrum a central reason why the $39 billion takeover of the fourth-largest national carrier is needed."
