U.S. Cellular Voices Interest in Verizon's 700MHz Spectrum
U.S. Cellular has indicated to the Federal Communications Commission that it is interested in purchasing spectrum currently being offered by Verizon Wireless. Verizon said it would sell its A and B block 700MHz spectrum providing the FCC approves its purchase of 122 AWS license from SpectrumCo. U.S. Cellular said it thinks Verizon's spectrum sale could help other carriers that hold Class 12 spectrum licenses in the 700MHz band. U.S. Cellular also told the FCC that it would allow the spectrum to be sold to AT&T or even built out by Verizon Wireless itself, as long as the resulting LTE network is compatible with the Band Class 12 networks run by U.S. Cellular, C Spire Wireless, and others. Whatever the outcome of Verizon's A and B block spectrum offering, U.S. Cellular implored the FCC to mandate interoperability in the 700MHz band so that it can strike 700MHZ LTE roaming agreements with AT&T and Verizon Wireless.

I think it's unwise to express an interest in a product that may or may not be for sale, especially in Verizon's case where the FCC is more than likely going to shut things down. This story is a prime example the sm
