T-Mobile USA (DTEGY.PK) asks the FCC to block Verizon's (VZ -0.7%) plan to buy certain wireless spectrum assets from Comcast (CMCSA), Time Warner Cable (TWC) and others, arguing that the sale poses "a clear threat to competition." Additional spectrum would give VZ the ability to raise download speeds for such high-data devices as laptops and smartphones.
