AT&T Seeking 700MHz Spectrum from Peoples Wireless

AT&T has asked the FCC for permission to purchase two Lower 700 MHz C Block licenses from Peoples Wireless in Texas. If granted, AT&T would hold 24 MHz of contiguous, paired Lower 700 MHz spectrum in the two cellular market areas in question. AT&T says this would let it deploy 10x10 MHz LTE carrier aggregation and improve coverage/performance. The two CMAs cover 17 counties across Texas. AT&T could hold between 30 and 55 MHz of below-1GHz spectrum in the CMAs, which triggers additional scrutiny from the FCC. The agency has accepted the filings and set up the initial set of target dates for petitions to deny, oppositions, and replies. Small transactions such as this are common between companies. AT&T did not place a dollar value on the spectrum transfer.
