T-Mobile to Scoop Up Spectrum from nTelos

nTelos has decided to wind down its operations in the eastern half of Virginia and sell its spectrum assets there to T-Mobile. nTelos said it will keep its operations in western Virginia and West Virginia up and running, as it has a stronger retail presence in those areas. T-Mobile has agreed to pay $56 million for nTelos' 1900MHz spectrum. nTelos expects to complete the spectrum sale by April 2015, but will lease back its spectrum thereafter so it can provide service to existing customers through November 2015. After that point, it will be T-Mobile's to do with as it pleases. The FCC will need to approve the spectrum sale.

Eastern Virginia

is more or less well covered. Hopefully nTelos spectrum there is outside of major towns and metro areas where T-Mobile severely lacks.
It should be. They cover western Virgina outside of the cities pretty well from what I saw. Well at least along the highways I must rephrase.

They need to...

concentrate on the western part of the state. nTelos runs Sprint's network in this part of the state. Check Sprint's LTE coverage in SW Virginia. It doesn't exist.
Exactly!!! I was recently in Roanoke, VA and was shocked to see zero LTE coverage from nTelos. While the 3G and voice coverage was great it was annoying not to have 4G.
