    If the 5G guys win which I hope they don’t why cannot the NA broadcast satellites shift to 4.2 Ghz - 4.7 Ghz spectrum? They will have to only provide new LNBs to earth stations and everyone lives peacefully.

    This wouldn't even be necessary if they had just let T-Mobile/Sprint merge without conditions.

    That stupid Dish Network wireless provider is completely unnecessary and when you have four different companies fighting each other for wireless spectrum it results in tons of wasted spectrum. We don't need four wireless companies.

    Wish that made sense.... Except.... this same frequency grab is happening worldwide and has little to do with the number of services fighting to control the limited bandwidth. Fun to blame Charlie for every RF woe, but I don't follow your logic.

    Charlie is a stubborn guy, but not a very consistent one. He wont follow the world when it comes to an ota broadcast standard, but he is willing to take bandwith away from American broadcasters to follow the rest of the world.
