Verizon Looks to Snap Up Spectrum in Pennsylvania

Verizon Wireless today filed an application with the Federal Communications Commission seeking permission to purchase spectrum owned by South Canaan Cellular Communications (subsidiary of U.S. Cellular) in two Pennsylvania counties. Verizon is specifically looking at South Canaan's cellular Block B licenses KNKN800 and associated common carrier fixed point-to-point microwave licenses. Verizon wants the spectrum because it currently doesn't serve those markets and would like to enter the markets with 3G voice and data services, and eventually LTE 4G services. The transaction, if approved, would give Verizon a 59MHz block of spectrum below 1GHz. Once the deal is closed, Verizon Wireless would transition South Canaan's customers to its services over a period of nine to 12 months.
