Cingular vs AT&T on spectrum alloc

Cory Doctorow points to public comments on FCC discussions about some spectrum realloc. I like his description of the Cingular and ATT positions — I think that the contrast between Cingular and AT&T is especially striking here. AT&T is saying, yeah, we’re a telco, this is gonna gore our ox, so we’ve gone out and bought a different ox. Cingular is saying, dammit, that’s our ox, where do you get off goring it?
