Stop The Cell Phone Squeeze
Cell phone companies need access to wireless spectrum to provide mobile services. On the eve of a critical new wireless spectrum auction, the Big Three cell phone giants (who already control almost 94% of the market) are trying raise prices by tricking the government into shutting independent competitors out of the market.
They want to block smaller independent cell phone providers from being able to use essential wireless spectrum. These giant phone companies are going so far as to use high-priced lobbyists and one is even using a fake grassroots campaign.
"Conservatives" support small business and free enterprise. Neocons say they support small business but don't. They support large corporations overpowering small business. That is not a free and democratic society. Stephen Harper is not a conservative. He is a neocon.
