The article argues the costs and risks involved in reallocating spectrum for other uses that can save money in the U.S. It states that the reallocations save money in spectrum fees, its drawback is that technologies required and spectrum bands used might remain niche with low subscribers. It asserts that the implication with the reallocations is that equipment and its terminals could be proprietary or rather costly than mainstream devices.
