Verizon Wireless today filed an application with the Federal Communications Commission seeking permission to purchase spectrum owned by South Canaan Cellular Communications (subsidiary of U.S. Cellular) in two Pennsylvania counties. Verizon is specifically looking at South Canaan's cellular Block B licenses KNKN800 and associated common carrier fixed point-to-point microwave licenses. Verizon wants the spectrum because it currently doesn't serve those markets and would like to enter the markets with 3G voice and data services, and eventually LTE 4G services. The transaction, if approved, would give Verizon a 59MHz block of spectrum below 1GHz. Once the deal is closed, Verizon Wireless would transition South Canaan's customers to its services over a period of nine to 12 months.

A model previously rumored to have fallen victim to supply-chain issues, the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE (Fan Edition) is finally coming to market this month. Samsung will use the new model as the more-affordable alternative to the forthcoming S22 series, rather than keep last year's flagship S21 models on the market at lower prices as the company has done in the past.
Northeast corner of PA is all U.S. Cellular. Every single carrier other than them roam in that area. Interesting to see if VZW inches into that area.
