DSL Reports has some info on the concessions AT&T is willing to make. AT&T wants to start 10 wireless trials using their 2.3 and 2.5 licensed spectrum by EOY 2007 - that they have been squatting on for about 5 years. The concessions were for them to give some of that spectrum up for WISPs and CLECs to use.
