AT&T Chasing Yet More B Block 700MHz Spectrum
AT&T recently filed paperwork with the Federal Communications Commission seeking permission to purchase 700MHz spectrum licenses from several companies. In particular, AT&T wants one license each from Wireless Communications Ventures, Central Sterns Comsis, and Communications Alternatives, that cover the St. Cloud, Minn., Cellular Market Area. The transaction, if approved by the FCC, would give AT&T 75MHz of spectrum in total, and 55MHz of spectrum below 1GHz in the St. Cloud area. The FCC has accepted the filing and will begin to review the transaction. Petitions to deny are due November 16, oppositions are due November 26, and replies are due December 3. AT&T says the transaction will help it improve LTE coverage throughout the St. Cloud market.
