11:53 EDTDISHDISH abused small business program in auction, FCC Commissioner says
FCC Commissioner Ajit Pai stated: "Last month, the FCC’s Wireless Telecommunications Bureau disclosed that two companies in which DISH Network Corp. has an 85% ownership stake are claiming over $3B in taxpayer-funded discounts on licenses they won during the AWS-3 spectrum auction. As I said then, allowing DISH, which has annual revenues of approximately $14B and a market capitalization of over $34B, to obtain billions of dollars in taxpayer subsidies would make a mockery of the small business program. The evidence of abuse continues to mount. DISH recently disclosed that it made approximately $8.504B in loans and $1.274B in equity contributions to those two companies—hardly a sign that they were 'very small businesses' that lacked access to deep pockets. Moreover, we now know that DISH’s abuse of the program had an enormous impact on actual small businesses serving actual customers." Reference Link
