In the most recent FCC spectrum auction, carriers paid nearly $20 billion to grab a swath of the 700MHz spectrum. And now under President Obama's proposed budget, wireless carriers would be hit with huge annual fees — eventually $500 million per carrier — for the right to hold a spectrum license, in addition to the billions already paid in FCC spectrum auctions. Are spectrum auctions and fees really something that the FCC should be bragging about?"
