MetroPCS has acquired the spectrum and other wireless assets of Pocket Communications New England. Pocket NE's coverage includes portions of Connecticut and Massachusetts. Terms of the deal were not disclosed, though MetroPCS said that it will use Pocket NE's assets to add to its own coverage in the region, and will eventually deploy Long Term Evolution there via its AWS spectrum holdings. Pocket sent a letter to customers in September warning them that the company was insolvent and would cease operations on October 31, 2010.
