SPOTLIGHT: Metric of the Week


FierceWireless has some great info on how much money wireless carriers have been spending on federal government lobbying efforts this year. We thought we would add another figure to the lobbying tally: $100,000. That's the amount that Covad Communications spent with Stanton Park Group to lobby on its behalf during the first half of this year. It also happens to be the amount that AT&T spent with J.C. Watts Cos. on lobbying during the same period.
