Nokia commends FCC for 'open access' clause in 700MHz spectrum

While we've already heard AT&T give its own praise in favor of the "open access" clause in the 700MHz spectrum auction, here comes yet another firm ready and willing to give the thumbs-up to the FCC on its relatively consumer-friendly decision. Nokia has made known that it "applauds" the move to require open access for the 700MHz spectrum, and stated that the "decision represents an acknowledgment by the FCC that US consumers should have access to a broader choice of innovative wireless devices and services." Furthermore, the company claimed that the rules would be "an important step towards meeting consumer demand and driving further innovation as mobility and the internet converge." We believe a round of golf claps are in order, no?
