The company must have liked its CDPD revenue: The firm wants 12 MHz of 24 MHz set aside in the 700 MHz band for a nationwide broadband public-safety network. The network would be unavailable to Verizon’s commercial customers.
Earlier this year, Cyren Call Communications suggested allocating, not auctioning, an additional 30 MHz of 700 MHz that could be shared among public safety and commercial uses with first responders having priority. This would augment the 24 MHz already allocated, but bypass an auction process.

Oh yeah, let's have another huge bureauracracy like Verizon try to oversee the public safety efforts of all the municipalities, cities, counties and states in the U.S. Their goal is to increase their coffers even more, not provide a safer and more secure country. This effort requires a grass roots, consistent approach, much as is being done today. Hey big boys, a "one size fits all" approach just doesn't hack it!
