U.S. Cellular CEO Ken Meyers said the company has an adequate supply of spectrum and therefore doesn't think it will be necessary to participate in the upcoming 600MHz auction. "We want to make sure that we have low-band and mid-band spectrum in every one of our markets," said Meyers to investors this week. Meyers didn't rule out participating entirely, however. He indicated the company needs low-band spectrum in a couple of markets, but would only buy spectrum in those markets if the price is right. AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon are all expected to bid for spectrum, though Sprint has said it will not. U.S. Cellular also said it has successfully tested VoLTE in three markets and expects to launch the improved voice service in at least one market later this year.
