No, not really. They're basically trading spectrum. AT&T is picking up some VZW assets in Eastern NY. More of a trade to solidify the continuity of their coverage.

Texas is not included for Verizon Wireless. Divested parts of Kentucky will go to Verizon Wireless though. I forgot where else Verizon Wireless will get some Dobson divested assets. But as far as Dobson PCS spectrum; that was a trade, since at&t wasn't forced to divest any PCS spectrum, since most of Dobson's PCS licenses were only 10mhz. The only areas they were forced to divest were areas where Donson's cellular network overlapped with at&t's cellular network. Verizon knows some Unicel markets will have to be divested, and at&t will get those areas that get divested, including upstate New York, Vermont, and some other areas I can't think of. I know one area in Kentucky has to do with the B side. Dobson has the entire A side to that market, while at&t & Verizon have a split B side for the market. I don't know who will get what, unless the A side gets split, where Verizon gets the A side portion that already overlaps with at&t's B side, and at&t gets the a side where it overlaps with Verizon's B side. Maybe at&t will give up their B side and give it to Verizon, while at&t keeps the entire A side. I don't know about that one.
