The ASSUMPTION here is that all spectrum is equal, which it isn't. Verizon and AT&T have the largest amounts of the most valuable spectrum in the lower bands. Ask Verizon if they would like to swap spectrum with Sprint and I'll bet all my money on their answer of NO.

Not equal is true. But valuable depends. Verizon just got a bunch of high frequency spectrum from T-Mobile because they need it for capacity. And they sold a bunch of low frequency spectrum that they weren't using. Low frequency is good in rural areas, but has poor capacity in the city where high frequency spectrum is useful.
