U.S. Cellular recently petitioned the Federal Communications Commission for permission to purchase a handful of 700MHz spectrum licenses in Nebraska/Kansas and North Carolina. According to FCC filings, U.S. Cellular hopes to snag two 700MHz spectrum licenses from USA Communications in Nebraska/Kansas, and three licenses from Cavalier Wireless in North Carolina. The spectrum in question falls in the lower A, B, and C Blocks, and "will allow USCC to improve and enhance its voice and data service offerings in those markets." U.S. Cellular, like AT&T and Verizon Wireless, is using 700MHz on which to operate a Long Term Evolution network. Terms were not disclosed.
