AT&T has filed paperwork with the Federal Communications Commission seeking permission to acquire a chunk of B Block 700MHz spectrum from Maxima International. This particular slice of airwaves is located in Houma and Thibodaux Counties in Louisiana. If the transaction is permitted, AT&T will walk away with 55MHz of spectrum below 1GHz in both counties. Terms weren't immediately disclosed. AT&T has been seeking blocks of 700MHz spectrum across the country in order to help increase the potential footprint for its forthcoming Long Term Evolution network.
I HAVE AT&T... THEY AREN'T ALL THAT BAD... PPL SHOULDN'T ALWAYS BASH THEM... LEAST THEY LET ME ALWAYS MAKE PAYMENT ARRANGEMENTS WHEN I CAN'T PAY MY BILL AT THE TIME WHEN I HAVE ISSUES... BUT YEAH THEY ARE COOL MAN... THIS YEAR IT SEEMS LIKE THEY ARE BUYING AND BUYING TO IMPROVE IT'S NETWORK MORE... I HAVE NO PROBLEM WITH MY ATT SERVICE... I AIN'T ALL THAT BUT IT'S NOT SOOOO BAD... GO AT&T!!!!!
I mean, they're only buying T-Mobile for more spectrum(screw the customers and employees), so if they're just going to buy more this way, how about they not destroy the jobs of most of 40,000 T-Mo employees?
Leave TMO alone? It was their parent DT who wanted to sell. Why don't you call Bonn and ask for their CEO and tell them how you don't think its fair and its not right, I'm sure we will hear the laughing all the way from there.
It seems that At&t apparently has the money to improve their existing network but would rather focus on becoming the largest provider to what end? How are they going to convince the public that they will deliver a solid network once their allowed to attain all this spectrum given their track record?
