AT&T is hoping to purchase 700MHz and AWS spectrum from CenturyTel, according to documents filed with the Federal Communications Commission. The documents reveal that AT&T is looking to acquire 51 Lower 700MHz B Block licenses, four Lower 700MHz C Block licenses, and six Advanced Wireless Service (AWS) licenses from CenturyTel for an undisclosed sum. AT&T says it needs the spectrum to strengthen its LTE 4G network in the regions covered by the licenses. In total, 54 cellular market areas across 14 states fall under the spectrum AT&T seeks. A quick look at the proposal shows that if allowed to go through, AT&T will hold the maximum-allowable 55MHz of spectrum in 25 of the markets affected. The FCC has accepted the applications for review and set a pleading cycle for opponents to speak their minds. Petitions to deny are due September 25; oppositions are due October 5; and responses are due October 15.

Where Did Century Tel Get Spectrum?

I was about to ask the same question. I'm baffled. Like WTF???
