AT&T Looking to Score More 700MHz Spectrum

AT&T recently filed a request with the Federal Communications Commission to purchase 700MHz B Block spectrum licenses from a company called Broadband Wireless Unlimited. The licenses in question cover cellular market areas (CMAs) in Georgia, Illinois, Louisiana, Massachusetts, New York, Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia. If allowed to proceed, the spectrum acquisition would give AT&T between 70 and 125MHz of spectrum in the nine CMAs covered by the licenses. The FCC has deemed the initial applications acceptable for review and has established a pleading cycle to begin its review process. Petitions to deny the spectrum license transfer are due November 14, oppositions are due November 26, and replies are due December 3. AT&T has not announced the value of the transaction. It says the additional spectrum will help bolster its LTE 4G coverage in the markets named.
