The article talks about the persistence of some companies to acquire U.S. Federal Communications Company (FCC) licenses for the 800 MHz guard band. This persistence is aimed at selling the license to Nextel according to the author. The author argues that these companies are only for the monetary benefits of the authorizations and are not aware of the technicalities of the licenses. He also notes various implications that might happen because of the persistence of the license mills. The author believes that to prevent any havoc, FCC must take an action.
