The Federal Communications Commission today approved the transfer of AWS spectrum licenses from AT&T to T-Mobile USA. The transfer is part of the kill fee awarded by AT&T to T-Mobile for last year's failed acquisition. T-Mobile gains AWS spectrum in 128 Cellular Market Areas, including 12 of the top 20 markets. "We applaud the FCC for acting swiftly to approve the transfer of these spectrum licenses," said Neville Ray, chief technology officer, T-Mobile USA. "Securing this additional spectrum was a key catalyst for our plans to launch LTE in 2013 and is therefore good news for our customers." T-Mobile plans to use the AWS spectrum for its forthcoming LTE 4G network, which is expected to launch in 2013.
