To be fair, when the three major players entered the market there was
only CDMA and GSM, and then the "2G" higher frequencies.  The new
frequencies for UTMS/HSPA were only auctioned to the new providers,
who are the only ones to need the multi-frequency handsets.

The three major players aren't likely to acquire multi-frequency
handsets.  They'll claim it's to keep handset costs lower, but I think
it's to prevent their handsets from being unlocked and used on the new
carriers' networks.

All in all, I'd rather see the new frequencies assigned to new
carriers (and so, handset incompatibility) rather than the major
players monopolizing the new spectrum and stifling competition.
