Sparring Over Softbank, Sprint, Clearwire Begins

AT&T is urging regulators to take a close look at Sprint's recent deals with Softbank and Clearwire, a normal part of business lobbying when a competitor looks to be gaining some advantage in the market. 

AT&T is making a point about a "foreign company" owning a large chunk of the nation's airwaves. Most observers that will not be a factor in regulatory thinking, as Germany's Deutsche Telekom and the United Kingdom's Vodafone already have a large U.S. presence, and therefore "ownership" of U.S. airwaves.
