T-Mobile Snags A Bit More 700MHz Spectrum
T-Mobile recently asked the FCC for permission to buy spectrum licenses from Actel, a company owned by CenturyLink. The deal includes 13 licenses that cover various small cities in portions of Alabama, Arkansas, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Michigan, Missouri, Montana, New Mexico, and Oklahoma. The total number of POPs contained in the markets is about 6.5 million. T-Mobile told the FCC the purchase will help it improve its service offering to customers in those regions. No terms were disclosed in the FCC filing. T-Mobile also recently agreed to snap up another small sliver of 700MHz spectrum from I-700 A Block. Those licenses cover Evansville, Ind., and Henderson and Paducah, Ky.
