C Spire Wireless is hoping to buy some Lower 700 MHz C Block spectrum from Waller Wireless. The companies recently filed the request with the FCC. In particular, C Spire would receive three licenses totaling 12 MHz of C Block spectrum covering 22 counties in three larger cellular market areas in Mississippi. The FCC says if the deal is completed as proposed, C Spire will hold 39 to 84 MHz in total and 24 to 49 MHz of below-1-GHz spectrum in the named regions. Because the transaction covers low-band spectrum, it will be subject to extra scrutiny from government agencies before being approved. C Spire says the transaction, which only includes the spectrum licenses and no customers/assets, will help it improve its LTE network in the region. The companies did not immediately place a dollar value on the transaction.
