AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon, DoD to Explore Spectrum Sharing
AT&T today announced via its public policy blog that it has signed a memorandum of understanding with T-Mobile USA, Verizon Wireless, and the Department of Defense to explore the idea of sharing spectrum. The agreement follows recommendations made by the NTIA last year that the option be used as an alternative to new spectrum auctions. The companies will test sharing a 95MHz slice of airwaves between 1755MHz and 1850MHz, which is currently used by the DoD. The testing will be carried out over the next couple of months, and is expected to be completed by the end of March. The tests will include monitoring, sharing, and simulations at five locations specified by the DoD to see if DoD activities are harmed or disrupted by nearby base station activity. The results will be shared by the Commerce Spectrum Management Advisory Committee when ready.

at&t is so full of it
Hey at&t, its pretty evident that you know how to buy spectrum, but don't know how to USE it. Instead of making the DoD late to the coffee shop, why don't you put the tools you already have to use.
Wait, sorry I suggested that, seems it's impossible to do because it makes sence.
LTE 1800 anyone?
Pink Jazz said:
So, does this mean we will start having LTE 1800 phones? In Europe there is GSM 1800, and perhaps as 2G GSM is phased out Europe can soon follow suit with LTE 1800 as well.
No, the DCS 1800 MHz band...
This is specifically to see whether or not *any* wireless carrier can operate a network on spectrum that's already being used by the government (1755-1850MHz). This particular plan is a test of these specific airwaves only, and just to make a ...
