The FCC has completed its Auction 108 for 2.5 GHz radio licenses and announced the winners. As expected, T-Mobile purchased the vast majority of the over 8,000 county-based licenses on offer. This 2.5 Ghz spectrum aligns with band 41, which T-Mobile already uses extensively for its mid-band 5G network. T-Mobile's existing licenses in this band were cobbled together from a variety of original owners, mostly covering more urban areas, leaving many rural areas unlicensed. This auction aimed to fix that, and succeeded, with 98% of the licenses sold. T-Mobile's new licenses will allow the company to fill some of the holes in its mid-band 5G coverage across the US. T-Mobile spent over $304 million for 7,156 licenses.
