AT&T Outlines Plans for T-Mobile AWS Spectrum
AT&T today provided details of its plan to integrate the T-Mobile USA network with its own. The company plans to phase out WCDMA in the AWS 1700 MHz band, moving T-Mobile customers to new multi-mode phones with WCDMA 850/1900. This will free up T-Mobile's AWS band spectrum for deployment of LTE. Once the transaction closes, the new company will immediately "dual-band" the cell sites the company plans to keep in the new combined network, allowing them to serve all customers. The company will also immediately enable free roaming for all customers as the networks are integrated. AT&T also confirmed that it still plans to use its recently-acquired 700 MHz spectrum for LTE as well, plus AWS spectrum already owned by AT&T.
