I worked at NextWave Wireless full-time (more than 10 years)Pros
Some of the smartest people I had ever worked with. Company had a game changing plan that was more advanced than iPhone in 2006. Well funded with over $800 million of funding. Experience management team. There were at least 10 senior executives who were qualified to run Fortune 500 companies. Challenging and cutting edge projects. Great spectrum assets worth over $2 billion. Great plans and execution until hedge funds snuck in to steal the spectrum. AT&T acquired the company for part of the spectrum and technology assets for $600 million.Cons
Hedge Funds disguised as equity investors back-doored into the company by CFO and GC.Advice to ManagementAdvice

NextWave Wireless is lopping off its POPS to keep tiptop.

In Canada it owns licenses with 15 million POPS covered by 30 MHz of spectrum. The company plans to sell most of its spectrum to pay a debt of more than $890 million.
