at first glance there would appear to be a good argument for a single entity which runs the physical network (towers etc) and holds the spectrum.

then phone companies access that network at pre agreed costs with all companies being offered the same pricing schemes (there could be discounts offered for companies willing to use unpopular spectrum areas which would give smaller operators a possible toehold until they can grow their business enough to afford usage of more popular spectrum)

then of course reality creeps in and you realise that the single company would represent a single point of failure and would probably increase prices as much as it could (since there is no competition) before being broken up by the gov't under monopoly rules
