Does Verizon's total 700 MHz holdings equal more than AT&T's?

I was unsure whether that map you made with AT&T's holdings represented EVERYTHING, including the Aloha purchase, or just what it won in auction 73?

I had been under the impression that it's B block purchases in combination with the Aloha purchase and other snap ups actually came to a larger (and complete) national coverage then Verizon. Is that not true?

Excellent article.

That map is AT&T's total 700 MHz holdings.

It is much less than Verizon's in both geography and bandwidth. (Even though they may have paid slightly more when you add up auctions and all of the private purchases.)

all things considering, AT&T ripped themselves off with their strategy of buying up companies with spectrum holdings. On the other hand, if they were more active in this auction, the C block might have sold for much more $$$, so who knows. In the end however, they paid more than VzW did for less spectrum, so you know you know AT&T is slapping itself and likely some1's getting fired ( oh wait, in todays corporate America, he'll probably be let go with a multi-million $$ severance package)
