Leap today announced plans to launch Cricket in a number of cities thanks to buys made in the recent AWS auction. The carrier will begin building out networks late next year and continue through 2009 in cities throughout the country. Leap plans to cover Baltimore; Baton Rouge and New Orleans, Corpus Christi TX, Las Vegas, Minneapolis, Norfolk, Richmond VA, St. Louis, Oklahoma City, Philadelphia, Seattle, Washington DC and Wilmington DE. Leap's spectrum purchases also included some large rural areas or metro areas the company does not need more coverage for. It is open to trading or selling this space, as well as considering partnering with affiliates to build something out in these areas. Earlier this week Leap launched service in San Diego.
Here come the little guys...
