AT&T and T-Mobile Ask FCC for Permission to Transfer Spectrum
Jan 23, 2012, 3:43 PM by Eric M. Zeman
AT&T and T-Mobile USA today filed paperwork with the Federal Communications Commission seeking approval to transfer spectrum from AT&T to T-Mobile USA. AT&T had promised T-Mobile USA some of its spectrum if AT&T's proposed acquisition of the smaller company fell through. The deal fell apart in December. T-Mobile USA will be given AWS mobile spectrum in 128 markets, including 12 of the top 20 markets in the U.S. (Los Angeles, Dallas, Houston, Atlanta, Washington, Boston, San Francisco, Phoenix, San Diego, Denver, Baltimore and Seattle). In addition to the spectrum, AT&T signed a seven-year UMTS roaming agreement that gives T-Mobile USA a coverage boost from 230 million POPs to 280 million POPs. The roaming agreement gives T-Mobile a significantly larger service footprint for UMTS-based voice and data. The FCC has yet to comment on the spectrum transfer.

Any DETAILED info on WHERE coverage will increase
The service is great when it works, but it fails really bad when I travel up and down California. I frequently travel from San Francisco to LA on the weekends and the coverage is extremely poor when I get closer north.
This hurts Sprint
