Group of Concerned Parties asks FCC to “stop the clock” on Verizon Wireless, SpectrumCo and Cox

Buried in a filing late on Friday, Verizon and its cable partners defended their spectrum purchasing deal and the secretive cross-marketing agreements that go along with it. This morning a group of concerned parties, including T-Mobile, Sprint, DIRECTV, and the Rural Telecommunications Group filed a letter with the FCC asking the Administration to “stop the clock” on the proceedings until both the FCC and the public can see the contents of these heavily redacted agreements.

A wide and growing number of entities have expressed varying levels of concern about the potential impact of these transactions. However, Verizon and the cable companies have now made clear that they will not submit unredacted documents unless ordered to do so by the Commission.
