Sprint and AT&T Request a Spectrum Swap
Nov 23, 2010, 2:40 PM by Philip Berne
Sprint and AT&T have filed a request with the FCC for a swap of spectrum licenses according to FCC documents. The move would give AT&T better coverage in a few major cities, including Dallas-Ft. Worth, Denver, New Orleans, San Francisco and other large metro areas. Sprint would see benefits in Tampa; New Orleans; Charlotte, North Carolina; and Cleveland, among a few other spots. The filing is light on specific details about what services and network capabilities will be enhanced in those areas, but both carriers claim that the transaction would help them to enhance their ability to expand commercial mobile wireless service. Any parties interested in petitioning for denial of the transaction must file by December 17, 2010, and the entire process should be filed and awaiting approval before the end of this year.
