I see Att buying up the Arizona 850 spectrum since all they have is pcs spectrum there, and US Cellular has been making some moves finance wise to buy.

from what i've heard and read, at&t will be the single largest purchaser of the divested spectrum (alltel is the incumbent carrier in markets like NC/SC (and other southeast markets), so verizon wont need all the spectrum... at&t only has 1900 mhz spectrum in the carolinas for example, so they REALLY need the 850).

the spectrum holdings wont get truly deployed for at least 12 months though, regardless of who buys them. Sad

Even though they use different teechnologies, the 850MHz or 1900MHz frequncies are all the same. All they are radio frequncies that all carriers use.

Oh, so even though the frequencies are the same, but the technologies are different, where does the difference in technologies take place? The actuall cell towers?

Why can't T-Mobile ever buy 850 spectrum when its available? AWS 1700 is not all that.
