Primosphere does not want to "lease" spectrum. They are seeking that their application be granted so that they, Primosphere, will be a licensee of a portion of the SDARS spectrum. The company also clarified that their satellite radio service would be FREE.

Simply stated, the company wants a portion of the existing spectrum on a permanent basis to deliver a free Satellite radio service. They company contends that their free service would offer a competitor in the satellite radio arena to a combined Sirius and XM.
