AUCTION WINNERS CALL FOR SETTLEMENT BETWEEN GOVERNMENT AND NEXTWAVE

WASHINGTON, DC - July 25, 2001 - The leaders of five wireless carriers who were winning bidders in the recent reauction
of wireless spectrum licenses, and representing nearly 90 percent of the monies bid, have proposed that the U.S. Government
and
NextWave work to immediately reach a settlement that would preserve the results of Auction No. 35. The Federal Communications
Commission cancelled NextWave's licenses when it defaulted on its payments for the licenses in 1998.

The purpose of this letter is to offer the cooperation of Alaska Native Wireless, Dobson Communications Corporation, Verizon
