AT&T Looking to Score Plateau Wireless Spectrum
AT&T and Plateau Wireless have filed paperwork with the Federal Communications Commission seeking permission to transfer certain spectrum licenses held by Plateau to AT&T. AT&T hopes to gain 700MHz, 850MHz, and AWS spectrum covering select markets in New Mexico and Texas. "This acquisition will enhance and supplement our wireless coverage in rural areas of southeast New Mexico and west Texas. We frequently do these sorts of deals as part of our commitment to give our customers a great mobile internet experience," said AT&T to Fierce Wireless. The spectrum transfer requires FCC approval before it can be completed.
