Verizon Wireless and U.S. Cellular have filed paperwork with the Federal Communications Commission in hopes of garnering approval for a planned spectrum swap. Under the terms of the agreement, Verizon Wireless will provide U.S. Cellular with 13 lower 700MHz B Block licenses and five lower 700MHz C Block licenses in Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Oregon, and Washington. In return, U.S. Cellular will provide Verizon Wireless with two 10MHz PCS licenses in Illinois and Indiana. According to the two companies, the PCS spectrum will allow Verizon Wireless to expand capacity and improve its services in the named markets, and the 700MHz spectrum will allow U.S. Cellular to expand into new markets, improve network capacity, and upgrade voice and data services in its existing markets.
