Verizon Wireless today announced that it has completed its acquisition of a small, regional network operator called Plateau Wireless. Plateau operates a GSM-based network in Eddy, Chaves, Lea, Otero, and Lincoln counties in New Mexico, which include cities such as Roswell, Carlsbad, Artesia and Hobbs. The transaction gives Verizon Wireless PCS and AWS spectrum licenses in addition to Plateau's GSM wireless network. According to Verizon, the licenses cover 259,000 POPs across 26,100 square miles. Verizon plans to cease Plateau's GSM operations and refarm the PCS spectrum for its own CDMA-based voice and data services. Verizon will use Plateau's AWS spectrum to supplement its own LTE 4G network in that region. Verizon expects the network transition to be completed at some point during 2013. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
