This hardly merits a post, but Andy Abramson doesn't have comments turned on in VoIPWatch.

He writes, "I keep hearing that Comcast has an interest in acquiring (Towerstream) to compliment their existing wireless spectrum portfolio."

Towerstream uses unlicensed spectrum for their standard offering; they use licensed spectrum strictly for point-to-point backhaul and 100Mb/s+ enterprise service, and that's 18 GHz and 23 GHz licenses.

So if Comcast bought Towerstream, it could be for their networks, could be for their enterprise customers, but is unlikely to be for their spectrum.
