WASHINGTON, Nov 23 (Reuters) - The U.S. Federal
Communications Commission said two companies are still
ineligible for $3.3 billion in small business bidding credits
for a wireless spectrum auction after they failed to demonstrate
they are independent entities from DISH Network Corp.
Northstar Wireless LLC and SNR Wireless LicenseCo LLC won
43.5% of the wireless spectrum licenses up for bid in a 2015
government auction and expected to use credits covering 25% of
the $13.3 billion in bids. The FCC on Monday said "DISH Network
continues to possess de facto control over SNR and Northstar."
