linked Yahoo/PCMag article is poorly researched
"In New York, San Francisco and many other places, AT&T owns a large 40 Mhz chunk of valuable 850-MHz spectrum."
Wrong. In a given market, a Cellular 850 MHz licensee controls the Cellular A-side 25 MHz license, Cellular B-side 25 MHz license, or both (for a total of 50 MHz). No Cellular 850 MHz licensee controls "a large 40 Mhz chunk" in any market.
In both NYC & SF, AT&T controls the (former AT&TWS) Cellular A-side 25 MHz block of Cellular 850 MHz spectrum.
For other examples, in Atlanta, AT&T controls the (former BellSouth) Cellular B-side 25 MHz block of Cellular 850 MHz spectrum and, in DFW, the (former AT&TWS) Cellular A-side 25 MHz and (former SBC) Cellular B-side 25 ...
Also, this stuff about 25mhz chunks of 850, to me that sounds like there is 825mhz MISSING from the signal ...
