In this article the author discusses the length of time the U.S. government is taking to reach an agreement with Mexican authorities on the reconfiguration of 800MHz licenses along the U.S./Mexico border. He points to the other problems facing the Federal Communication Commission such as the failing economy in 2009 and job loses as reasons for the slow negotiation process. He criticizes the federal government's five year negotiations with the Mexican authorities and the negotiations with Canada for the same agreement that took four years to complete.
