Short Take: BellSouth loses spectrum cap appeal

A federal appeals court has blocked a BellSouth attempt to waive a cap on the amount of wireless spectrum allotted to individual companies. The Baby Bell had contested a 1997 Federal Communications Commission decision that barred it from bidding on new airspace licenses for PCS, or personal communications services, systems. The court said the FCC had ruled fairly, and that BellSouth did not show its request served the public interest.
