Re: waiver
I guess the point here is to look out for all the users of these devices, not just the majority.

sprint and T-Mobile are just looking after the big chunk of the market, not all of it.

Re: waiver
I expect Ms. Ham to espouse T-Mobiles viewpoints, being a SVP and all.

But, I dont see her talking about RTT.

I dont see her addressing the hearing impaired community.

I'm not a AT&T partisan. But in this case, I think they went down the right path.

The others didn't. I dont see them even thinking about hearing impaired in anything they say.

Re: waiver
@larryloeb I see that AT&T considered that T-Mobile had been given the advantage over them.  Kathleen Ham, SVP, Government Affairs for T-Mobile, responded to that T-Mobile addressed AT&T's claim of FCC favoritism here at the CCA show. saying:

"Jim Cicconi likes to say that the Commission is picking winners and losers or favorites with T-Mobile and smaller carriers. I think that's silly. What he calls favoritism, others would call competitive policy.... We're subject to the same regulations they are. Comission has been rigorous in its regulation around wireless."

Re: waiver
The FCC linked the waiver to the deployment of the RTT technology.

I would expect that they would grant any future waivers for the same reason.

T-Mobile and Sprint haven't talked about TTY or RTT, probably because they don't havelandlines int he mix like AT&T has.

Interesting, are other companies likely to be granted such waivers now?
