Telecom companies should not be allowed to hold spectrum hostage. Spectrum used for cell phones should be regulated by the government; the same way the government regulates the airwaves for television and radio. No company should be able to control the spectrum and bar others from using it. In short, the issue of telecom companies holding spectrum hostage needs to be addressed by the government.
Several telecom companies have come under fire for keeping YouTube videos "hostage," which means that they are inaccessible to the average viewer. This is a barbaric practice that closes off sections of the internet that people have a legitimate need to use. Telecom companies should open their doors and allow people to view any YouTube video that they want.
This is way to much power for a corporation. Corporations should not be allowed to hold each other hostage, no matter what their ideals and reasons are. They often do not have the good of the people in mind and are only looking at the bottom line. When this changes they often make terrible decisions, if left unchecked.
