The article discusses the competition in the wireless market concerning the telecommunication policy on Long-Term Evolution (LTE) services for broadband spectrum. It says that the U.S. Federal Communications Commissions (FCC) needs to reassess the information on the 700-MHz bandwidth of LTE service providers. Meanwhile, the FCC does not see AT&T Inc. and Verizon Communications Inc. to be the only network operators which can provide LTE services and offer great pricing.
