Anti-trust suit filed against competitors by C Spire
Published: June 1,2012
ABERDEEN — C Spire Wireless has filed an anti-trust complaint against some its competitors in federal court in north Mississippi, claiming AT&T, Qualcomm and Motorola conspired to keep it out of the 4G LTE marketplace.
The defendants have filed motions — the most recent on Wednesday — asking a federal judge to throw out the complaint on grounds that C Spire failed to provide any evidence of a conspiracy and because the technical disputes underlying C Spire’s claims are already before the Federal Communications Commission in a rulemaking proceeding that C Spire itself initiated.
C Spire filed the lawsuit in Aberdeen, under its former name of Cellular South. It contends the defendants conspired to keep it from developing a 4G LTE service network and introducing devices compatible with the technology.
