AT&T to Scoop Up WCS Spectrum from Sprint
AT&T has agreed to pick up 19 WCS spectrum licenses from Sprint for an undisclosed sum, according to a filing the companies made with the Federal Communications Commission. The WCS licenses cover 2.3GHz spectrum across portions of the south, including Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Louisiana, and Texas. AT&T has already acquired several large blocks of WCS spectrum, though it has not said what it intends to do with the WCS airwaves. AT&T operates its LTE 4G network in the 700MHz band and its HSPA+ network in the 850/1900MHz band.
