Verizon Wireless recently filed an application with the Federal Communications Commission in order to acquire a block of 700MHz spectrum that covers the state of Alaska. The current owner, Triad, paid $1.8 billion for the spectrum license, though Verizon hasn't disclosed what price it is willing to pay for the block of spectrum. A Verizon Wireless spokesperson told Fierce Wireless that the license acquisition would make Verizon's 700MHz footprint over the U.S. complete. Once acquired, Verizon could then provide voice and data services to the state of Alaska, where it currently has no presence. Verizon plans to roll out Long Term Evolution data service to 25 - 30 markets in the continental U.S. later this year using the 700MHz band.
