AT&T has filed documents with the Federal Communications Commission seeking clearance to grab B and C Block 700MHz spectrum from Whidbey Telephone Company in the greater Seattle, Wash., area. According to the filing, AT&T will use the spectrum to "augment its network capacity." AT&T plans to deploy GSM/EDGE and HSDPA/UMTS on this spectrum. Long Term Evolution is not mentioned in the FCC filings, but AT&T plans to roll its LTE network out across the U.S. using 700MHz spectrum. The amount of spectrum covers 30 counties, and will give AT&T between 18MHz and 55MHz in those markets.

Wow!

Who would leave perfectly good spectrum just laying on the ground waiting for anyone to find?
Mom and Pop companies that don't have the income to develope it into something useful.
The same people who buy real estate and expect it to increase in value by itself

You watch. All this consolidated 700MHz spectrum eventually becomes Skynet.
